Mustard Seed Ranch is a charitable nonprofit organization that provides equine assisted therapy and life-experience programs to abused and neglected youth in Southern California.
Abuse is a serious issue that devastates the lives of an estimated 906,000 children in the U.S. every year. The impact of child abuse is long lasting and far-reaching. Child abuse cost taxpayers an estimated $103.8 billion in 2007. Not only are 28% more likely to be arrested as adults and 30% more likely to commit violent crimes, but 1/3 of abused and neglected children eventually victimize their own children.

“Who ever thought Horses could teach me about my life? I used to act out my anger in some pretty violent ways. My horse has taught me how to think through the situation first and see other ways to express my anger. This was a really big step for me.”
