Mountain River Youth Ranch  provides a safe and positive outdoor equestrian experience for children and their families on a working ranch in Snohomish, WA. We facilitate the joining up of the heart of a child with the love of a horse for a time designed just for them. A horse’s desire for relationship and  slow heartbeat are just two of their qualities that make them great partners for our youth program.

We have seen that giving even a little can impact a child’s life, altering the trajectory of their path. Our mentoring program  reignites hope and builds resilience to support the healing of struggling and at-risk youth, ages 6-18.

It was born out of a passion for all children to know they are loved and cherished for who they are no matter what has been done to them or what they have done.

Mountain River Youth Ranch is a non-profit, faith-based equine program.

“What a great, loving place! I can’t wait to take my kids back; if they could go daily, they would!
Awesome ministry that could benefit so many people, regardless of age.”
