Community Events

Focused on Families with Special Needs

Easter at the Ranch for families with special needs is one of our favorite events! Activities include arts and crafts, carnival games, refreshments, interactions with our ranch animals, and of course joining the Easter Bunny for the big Easter Egg Hunt. We provide three egg hunting areas for the children; one for the very young or physically challenged who may need a helper, one for those who may need a little extra time, and a third area for siblings with no challenges that can compete freely! This annual event is typically scheduled on Easter Saturday, from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. Please visit our website calendar for actual date and time each year. 





Paws for Reflection Ranch would love to share our mission and work with your organization or club. We can be a speaker at one of your meetings or setup our marketing booth at one of your events. We can also bring along some of our Therapy Animals for your employees and guests to meet as they learn about all the amazing equine and animal assisted therapies we offer at the Ranch. Please contact the Ranch to coordinate details.

Special Events

Santa at the Ranch for families with special needs is our favorite community event by far! Seeing Christmas through the eyes of these special children is magical! Families sharing similar challenges and responsibilities in life get to relax and enjoy the Christmas Season at the Ranch with activities like; interactions with our Ranch animals, holiday arts and crafts, carnival games, hay rides, horseback rides, refreshments, and a visit with Santa Claus to take that perfect photo. We encourage families to take as much time as they need with Santa to ensure they capture all the photos they wish. Santa at the Ranch is typically held on the 2nd Saturday in December but please check our website calendar each year for the actual date and time.





The Ranch Riders Horse Show is another annual event where all our riders in the Therapeutic Riding Program get to showcase their riding skills, for family, friends, and the community. It is so wonderful to witness their pride, confidence, and huge smiles as they ride with an audience cheering them on! All our riders receive an event t-shirt and trophy for their wonderful accomplishments. We have had the honor to see many of our riders grow up on horseback who have been riding with us for 8 years! Going from riding with two side-walkers and someone leading their horse, to now riding independently! Our Horse Show is scheduled in either the Spring or Fall depending upon our riding schedule so please check our website calendar for actual date and time each year.
