Family Focus: Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch Horse Therapy

Posted: Updated:
Some people have a special bond with animals, especially when they depend on them.

The Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch in Minot offers a horse program which includes therapeutic riding, equine facilitated psychotherapy and hippotherapy. While ranch residents do participate in some of these programs, others may wait all year to see their favorite horse.

"The horse kind of helps kids learn what it feels like to create a bond. For some of our riders in the hippotherapy program, they've never really connected to anybody, and for whatever reason, they start to feel that kinship with that horse. And then it spreads," says Jan Roers the horse program director for the Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch.

The Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch is always looking for volunteers to get involved with this program. If you are interested, you can contact Jan Roers at 857-4207.
