Today, we salute and celebrate all those who have served the cause of freedom and sworn their oath to the Constitution as a member of the U.S. Armed Forces! Happy Veterans Day!

Horse history: After the 9/11 attacks, the American military did something that had not been done for nearly a century: Ride horses into combat.

We stopped by the Dare to Dream Youth Ranch on Wallen Rd and dropped off a donation last week! We were lucky enough to get a tour of the ranch and learn all the good work they're doing connecting youth with their rescue horses. Learn more about them- https://www.daretodreamyouthranch.org/

In a world that seems entirely sideways, doing things right is so uncommon that it captivates us and shines light into the darkness. And that light gives us hope. Hope that we see in the eyes of a child, trying something for the first time. That's our reward and our "why" we do what we do at Dare to Dream Youth Ranch. If you would like to shine a light as well, donate, like or share us with someone you know. You can help change our world for the better!

Via Fort Wayne News: Dare to Dream Youth Ranch announced today that it will be renaming the ranch and offering a new program for novice riders and overcoming life's challenges. The Dare to Dive program at the new Dare to Dive Ranch will be offering intro to platform diving classes for riders from 20, 40 and 60 feet heights.

Asked about the program and the name change, Dare to Dive's new Executive Director, Bucky Spurrs explained: “One of our volunteers came up with the idea and wondered aloud, 'hey, why don't we launch horses and riders like SpaceX!.' Of course I said that was crazy. Let's instead use up some extra lumber and troughs we had laying around and bring them down from outer space...and the rest is one small step of genius and one giant leap for horsekind."

Dare to Dive will also be adding a manure-diving program this Spring as well. Stay tuned.

There was 14 of us that went to the Dare To Dream Ranch yesterday and we had a great time thank you Dare to Dream Ranch you guys do an awesome job. And I hope more people will go out and enjoy the Dare To Dream Ranch like we did.
Thank you so much for being so kind to my girls at the Autism Walk today. Makayla has Asperger's, and is obsessed with all things horses. She couldn't stop talking about her ride today. People and organizations like yours truly make a difference, and mean more than you will ever know!
What are your hours?
Doc has a new friend!
Thank you for all that you do! The kids enjoyed it!
Thank you to all of the volunteers at the dare to dream youth ranch for a wonderful evening. Even though it rained real hard, we had a good time thank you so much.
I just have to share these couple pictures because I was so incredibly impressed with the joy that all the Dare to Dream workers had today. You were all so friendly and excited with each child that you interacted with! Thanks for sharing in the mission behind Kate's Kart and for continuing your own mission at Dare to Dream with such enthusiasm!
