Rancho Del Sueño offers interactive activities with our horses in order to help individuals build confidence and improve their self-esteem, communication and social skills, relationships, and personal awareness. These activities help people learn to establish reasonable boundaries and earn respect. The horses are a critical part of this program as they provide immediate, indisputable feedback regarding the participants’ behavior. The horses also teach us about trust, respect, relationships, parenting, friendship, and unconditional love.
