Denver Zoo

Praying Hands Ranch  is partnering with the Denver Zoo to develop a facility master plan for the PHR site, which will feature improved designs for animal enclosures and enhanced accessibility for clients and community members. The master plan represents PHR’s dreams for the future and will provide a framework for upcoming improvements to PHR’s facilities and grounds. Master plan improvements will be designed as a series of smaller projects that can be implemented gradually over a period of years. Beginning this spring, PHR will collaborate with Olivia Stockert from the Zoo’s Department of Planning, Design and Construction Management to develop a vision for the facility that honors the unique needs of the wonderful animals, clients, staff and volunteers who share this space.


Equine Partnership Program

Boy with HorseEquine Partnership Program

Equine Partnership Program is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization located in Parker, CO. We provide equine - assisted mental health services to individuals of all ages. At the Equine Partnership Program, our mission is to assist clients on their personal journey toward healing through Equine Assisted Therapy. We take traditional therapy sessions out of the office in a unique approach that utilizes horses to achieve incredible results. Our equine partners work alongside therapists and clients in a bonded therapy team; in working together, our clients more effectively engage in the therapeutic process. This crucial partnership provides the tools that allow our clients to begin healing traumatic emotional wounds and meet their goals of personal growth. For other clients, healing may not mean recovery from their illness or disability because there is no “cure”. Instead the same irreplaceable partnership provides hands-on experiences and activities that help maintain and improve their quality of life.

Petting HorseThe Equine Partnership Program is proudly offering life changing therapies to many diverse populations in need. Adolescents living with Autism Spectrum Disorders attend our School-Based Life Skills program. Individuals with dementia, and their caregivers, participate in hands-on equine assisted activities in our Equine Elders program. Young adults with developmental disabilities benefit from our Equine Assisted Learning program. And individuals and families in our Equine Assisted Psychotherapy program receive mental health therapies. We also give horses no longer suitable for their original purpose a new “career” by training them to be therapy horses. As such, EPP has embraced an intergenerational model bringing together members of our community young and old, two and four legged, and adopting innovative ways to improve services for all.








Ghostprint is Helping The Ranch Grow more Sustainable by making the regenerative fertilizer with the animal waste, providing Recycling and helping with a plethora of other sustainable projects!

Does that work? We have so far cut down a bunch of dead branches, cut down a beetle infested Ghost Tree, removed over 20 tonnes of Manuer, recycled a bunch of scrap metal, picked up the recycling once a week and are growing Nutritious micro greens for the animals in the greenhouse! Our biggest goal is to increase pastures soil health by 2-20 times because as of our tests so far it is very poor.





Promise Ranch Therapies & Recreation

Promise Ranch Therapies & Recreation serves people’s physical, developmental, social and emotional healing needs through our Ranch-based and Community programs. PRTR offers Inclusive Recreation, Adaptive Riding, Mental Health Counseling, Occupational Therapy, and Supported Employment.
Our mission is to Enhance Our Community Through Connection and Inclusion, and we achieve this through our structured, safe and person-centered services, facilitated by our team of highly trained professionals.
PRTR is thrilled to partner with PHR! The leadership of PRTR and PHR are working collaboratively, strategically and intentionally to bundle our skills and expertise, so that we can expand services, reduce waitlists and serve our community even better. The disability rights advocate Helen Keller said: "Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much," and we think this quote beautifully describes the motivation of the PRTR/PHR partnership!
