Legacy Ranch helps children through Hearts and Horses program

S-E Staff Reporter

The Legacy Ranch in Loon Lake is an equine eventing stable that teaches combined training in show jumping, dressage and cross-country, but to kids who go through the Hearts and Horses program, it’s so much more.

“I’ve seen kiddos come through with autism who are able to bond with the horses and eventually learn to socialize with people,” said ranch spokesman Dawn Grundland.

The Hearts and Horses program allows low income and disabled children to take horsemanship lessons on a scholarship basis, when those lessons would be out of their financial reach otherwise.
