Shepherd Youth Ranch

I grew up riding horses and have been missing it so much lately! On Saturday I went to a volunteer orientation at this place called Shepherd Youth Ranch in Creedmoor, NC (just outside of Raleigh). They basically use horses as “therapists” of sorts in order to help a variety of kids- those who have been abused and are recovering from trauma, and also those with autism.

I am so into their mission statement:

“Our mission is to provide restoration and hope to those in need, through the unconditional love of Christ and a unique relationship with horses.” 

It seems like an amazing organization that genuinely seeks to love and serve others, not to mention it would be a great way to get my horse fix. 😉 Hoping to get involved there soon!
