ADVANTAGE RANCH Center for Equine Interactive Concepts (CEIC) is the home of an innovative way to utilize horses and rural life experiences to help kids. We help with a new technology called Equine Interactive Counseling™. The Equine Interactive Counseling™ method involves a teamwork approach using horses, parents, the community and CEIC certified coaches. This method builds skills in communication, observation, dedication. Children learn to set goals, work toward their goals, solve the problems that arise along the way, and evaluate their own progress. Through this process they authentically experience achievement and increased self worth. This is how ADVANTAGE RANCH helps children turn their present reality into the dreams that become their future.

The unique component is how the team creates a horse based conduit to help children. The horse is nature’s perfect partner for a child. The body of the horse has natural physical linkages to that of the rider. The mind of the horse has natural linkages to that of the child. This is so important. The horse can read the child, is sensitive to the child’s fears and feelings, and is responsive to the child’s attitude and direction. The horse is caring and observant of the child. When the child learns to be caring and observant of the horse, magic happens. Our Equine Interactive Counseling™ Coaches are trained to bring this magic alive.
