Serving SLO & Kern Counties

Providing young people with the tools to achieve their full potential and become our next generation of leaders, hard workers, engaged citizens and effective parents.

Since 2003 the Equine Alliance Youth Foundation has led the field in equestrian activities by provided experiential learning therapies utilizing horses to assist youth participants with personal growth and development. Our year-round programs serve and promote both human and animal welfare through collabroative and preventative partnerships.

The majority of kids that come to the ranch are experiencing physical, developmental, behavioral and mental health challenges. In response to these challenges, EAYF has successfully partnered with multiple public and private community organizations to help meet the needs of disadvantaged youth in our community.

EAYF is a Federal registered 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization serving San Luis Obispo and Kern CA. We receive no government-state funding and have no paid administration.

Together we improve the quality of life for youth while strengthening agency effectiveness in delivering unique comprehensive programs that create opportunities empowering youth to engage in their own life improvement process.

Please, if you support what we are doing, then consider this - we can't do it without your help. We need your financial gift now more than ever to keep our services free of charge for those in need. Your contribution to the Equine Alliance Youth Foundation, regardless of size and scale, is an investment in our community’s youth and future.
