In addition to all these fun activities, there will be face painting artists and a crafting booth for the buckaroos. There will be snacks (homemade goodies!) available for purchase throughout the morning and drinks as well from Ripon’s favorite mobile drink crafter: The Mare and the Mule! Be sure to look for the photo booth inside the barn and tag @triplehyouthranch. There will be a fantastic raffle prize up for grabs at the food booth, so make sure you enter to win!
Triple H Youth Ranch was founded by Aimee Groen as she brought her heart for youth and love of horses together.
The mission of THYR is:
To demonstrate God’s love to those who are hurting by offering time with a horse and a mentor.
To mentor young people to become compassionate leaders.
To share the country lifestyle and its benefits with others.
Please note that every purchase you make and donation you give will help this nonprofit organization as they strive to abide by their mission. For more information about Triple H Youth Ranch or to sponsor a youth or a horse, check out their website: triplehyouthranch.com or find them on Facebook and Instagram (@triplehyouthranch).
