Transforming lives through equine partnerships.

At BEAMING, we facilitate life-changing equine experiences to promote physical, cognitive and
emotional well-being for those in our community facing unique challenges.

Discover the healing power of horses. 
Through interaction and connection with horses, BEAMING’s program participants are able to learn, heal and grow, empowering them to improve their physical, mental and emotional health. 

Our program participants see improvements in posture, balance, fine and gross motor skills, cognition and language skills, and self-confidence and assertiveness, among a host of other benefits.

At the BEAMING Ranch, we embrace diversity, we promote inclusion and we celebrate those with diverse abilities. We provide a safe, nonjudgmental community gathering space where all are welcome.
