Aspen Ranch is a co-educational private school that offers programs for troubled teens that are based in a therapeutic environment on teaching four core values: respect, responsibility, relationships, and integrity.
The Ranch provides adolescents with a supportive structure and therapeutic activities, which are goal-oriented and address specific developmental skill and knowledge deficits as well as emotional and behavioral problems.
What makes Aspen Ranch unique and effective is the phenomenal Equine Program.
Aspen Ranch utilizes the philosophy of Equine TLC. Equine TLC (Teaching Life skills for Change) is founded on the principle that, through working with horses, students can learn life skills that initiate change.
All aspects of horses and horsemanship are used in the program, from bareback riding, to jumping, to barrel racing, to young horse training.
Horsemanship skills are integrated with team building activities, experiential learning, and therapy groups to create a unique program with endless possibilities.
