About Us

Our Mission

To offer a place where all individuals feel honored, empowered, and accepted through the healing experience of horses, animals, community, and nature.

How The Charity Works

Our program is called “Operation: Cowboy Kindness”!

We offer basic horsemanship and horseback riding services, including trail ride training, educational field trips and day camps, and horsemanship badges. We also offer party and event packages and team building options to the general public which act as fundraisers that make it possible for us to offer free and discounted services, donations, and scholarships to the at-risk, underserved, and marginalized communities that we serve.

Our standard scholarships and donations are in the form of 1/2 hour and 1 hour lesson packages, trail rides, pony rides, horsemanship camps, and equine activity parties. We also contribute and/or donate to a wide variety of organizations in the form of free donation certificates to be used as auction items to assist in the fund raising of other non-profit organizations in our community.

Our charitable services and donations are offered to other non-profit organizations including churches, schools, and government agencies that are also contributing their efforts towards the betterment of those less fortunate. We make these donations to the underserved and at-risk communities and to those with special needs that contact our facility either individually or through a representative affiliated with their agency. This is done either by phone, email, or in person after hearing about us from various sources.

Some of the organizations that have received our support include:

Anna’s House Foundation, CareCenter Ministries, Kiwanis Club of Pleasant Grove, New Millennium Fellowship, Strong Arms Church of Christ, Metropolitan Dream Center, Make A Wish Foundation, Orphan Angel, Samaritan Homeless Shelter, Texas Stampede Children’s Charity, My Possibilities Adults with Special Needs, ManeGait Gala, Birthday Blessings, Minnie’s Food Pantry, Especially Needed, Turning Point Rape Crisis Center, American Diabetes Assoc., Pegasus Autism, St. Jude’s, American Heart Association, Rocky Top Therapeutic Center and numerous local schools and individual special needs and underprivileged recipients.

It’s such a privilege to give back to the community and see so many kids’ smiling faces! Please help our efforts towards reinforcing to our youth and communities that “All dreams can come true”.

In The Beginning...

Come To Where The West Is One!

River Ranch Educational Charities:

RREC was started in 2003 in conjunction with the vision that “All dreams can come true”. Our dream has been to conserve a piece of nature within the city limits and provide an experience of the ranch life and horse world that might otherwise be unavailable to the general public and especially to underprivileged, at-risk, marginalized, and special needs communities. We feel that our youth are way too often deprived of the experiences and gifts that come with the peace and magic that await us along the trails, under the canopy of trees, and among the clouds floating in the open fields. Way too often these simple things are what is most desperately needed. Our intention is to encourage everyone, including the underprivileged and those with special needs, to see beyond what may be an “everyday” challenge, limitation or reality and to remember how many different roads, peoples, perspectives and possibilities lie beyond what we may experience in our homes, schools, neighborhoods or on T.V.

Welcome To The Texas Horse Park Equestrian Center!

The Texas Horse Park equestrian center construction was completed in late 2014. The early sample renderings, the building process in progress, and the aerial views of the facility help to see the basic layout of the various areas including the entrance to the center, the administrative offices, the activity and event center, the horse barn, and both the covered arena and outdoor arena.
