Carousel Wishes & Valentine Kisses
February, 2018 - Issue #161

"The past year has been a time of incredible growth and change. Carousel Ranch has brought new programs to life and increased students served by over 50 percent. Change and growth like this only happen because of the support of this incredible community and those that choose to keep our CHILDREN IN THEIR HEARTS."
Carousel Ranch Executive Director Denise Tomey Redmond
The sweetest dessert you'll treat yourself to this month comes with a tasty reward for local equestrian therapy program Carousel Ranch.

"In the tradition of giving to the ones we love on Valentine's Day, Wolf Creek's pastry chef has created a Carousel Cake to be sold from February 1 to February 28," explains Carousel Ranch Executive Director Denise Tomey Redmond. "It's truly one of the sweetest gestures the Ranch has received. We're so grateful to the entire Wolf Creek team and to everyone who purchases a slice of this fabulous cake!"

Buy your Carousel treat by the slice ($5 donation) or by the cake ($50 donation). It's a s'mores-inspired, handcrafted confection that our taste-testers couldn't get enough of. "It's absolutely delicious!," says Tomey Redmond. Call Wolf Creek for more information about this very special dessert! 263-9653

The Carousel Ranch Story
The children of Carousel Ranch are sure to melt your heart. They are kindred souls with special-need challenges that most of us will never comprehend. But their spirit is always strong as is their determination to achieve the impossible. To witness a child's transformation touches your heart in unimaginable ways. So what makes Carousel Ranch such a magical place? Therapy lessons are disguised as fun in an atmosphere where every child can succeed. The equestrian therapy provided creates a unique, individualized program to meet each child's specific needs and goals. Technically, the movement of the horse causes an inherent response from the child, relaxing muscles that are tight, increasing tone in muscles that are weak, building balance, coordination and control, which in turn enables children to use hands and arms, sit, stand and walk. Emotionally, there is a powerful horse-to-human bond that makes the impossible possible.

Each year many children with special needs wait for the opportunity to improve their health and experience life at Carousel Ranch. The Ranch is growing to serve more children and you can help them reach this goal by supporting their annual "Carousel Wishes & Valentine Kisses" campaign. Together, we can make a difference... one very special child at a time. For more information, visit
