Stormwalker Ranch: SWR is dedicated to Helping Horses Help People.  The Ranch provides its clients and community with horse training programs, recreational and therapeutic riding programs.  SWR is dedicated to celebrating our western heritage and ministering to the community by providing a place and programs that allow for people to not only grow into the people that they want to be but become the people they were meant to be.

Cowboy Dressage: We have found that providing our riders an opportunity to show and compete works toward accomplishing their goals in terms of personal development.   There are many options when it comes to showing, but the community with which SWR is most philosophically aligned is that of “Cowboy Dressage”®. 

Horsemanship: Stormwalker’s style of horsemanship is consistent with the horsemanship values of Cowboy Dressage®.  Training horses through the use of soft feel, partnership, communication and trust instead of fear and mechanics.

Outreach Programs: While a person is not required to be a Christian to work with Stormwalker Ranch, it is important for intern candidates to know that SWR has evangelical goals and is dedicated to growing a rider’s relationship with Jesus as Lord and Savior.
