"The recent hip surgery marked a pivotal moment, with therapy at Carousel Ranch emerging as a vital component in Aubrey's healing process. The therapeutic goal transcends the physical, aiming to enhance her COMFORT AND MOBILITY."
Carousel Wishes & Valentine Kisses

In the heart of Carousel Ranch's compassionate endeavors lies the story of Aubrey, a resilient 5-year-old rider who, despite facing the challenges of spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy, global delays and epilepsy, emanates a spirit of courage and joy. Aubrey's journey began with a cardiac arrest in infancy, leading to a diagnosis that would shape her path. Over time, the toll on Aubrey's hips became evident, resulting in discomfort and necessitating surgical intervention. The recent hip surgery marked a pivotal moment, with therapy at Carousel Ranch emerging as a vital component in Aubrey's healing process. The therapeutic goal transcends the physical, aiming to enhance her comfort and mobility.
For Aubrey, each session on horseback is a testament to the transformative power of joy and relaxation. A smile graces her face and a sense of tranquility envelops her as she engages in the therapeutic act of riding. In the words of Aubrey's mother, "Navigating the world with a child with disabilities can be challenging, making places like Carousel Ranch invaluable." The staff at Carousel Ranch has succeeded in creating a haven for students and families, a sentiment echoed by Aubrey's family.
As Carousel Ranch embarks on its annual Carousel Wishes & Valentine Kisses giving campaign throughout February, the Santa Clarita Valley community is invited in supporting this haven of healing. The Ranch, known for its innovative approaches to serving students, seeks contributions to reach its fundraising goal. The campaign is further elevated by the generous commitment of Wayne and Dianne Crawford, ardent supporters pledging to match every dollar raised up to $50,000.
Every donation, whether $10, $50, $100 or $500, gains newfound significance through this matching pledge, transforming into $20, $100, $200 and $1,000 for Carousel Ranch. The community, with its collective power, has the capacity to make a profound impact on the lives of children like Aubrey.
To explore further and contribute to this cause, please visit Together, we can create a ripple of positive change, bringing hope, healing and joy to the remarkable children of Carousel Ranch.
