Smiling Goat Ranch offers services to children with autism and veterans with PTSD using horses and small social animals like goats, rabbits and dogs. We are the first Horse Boy site to offer services for veterans. We do not believe autism is a problem to be fixed. We believe it is a viable way of going through life and know many successful adult autists and survivors of PTSD. We offer playdates, trail rides and small animal play.
