In these challenging times, it takes something special to succeed in a career, and in life.
Young people need a strong sense of who they are…what they want to stand for…and what kind of life they want to have. The trouble is this kind of reflection generally falls between the cracks in standard school curricula and traditional character education. Reigning Grace Ranch is a real-life working ranch, designed to mentor youth, one-on-one, in a safe encouraging place. We are helping to fill this gap with a program called BE, SOMEBODY! Rather than lecturing kids or telling them what to believe, it takes them on a journey of self-discovery and goal-setting – one that inspires them to reach for the best in themselves. Drawing on all three of Jim Owen’s books, THE TRY, COWBOY ETHICS, and COWBOY VALUES, it’s designed to reach students at an age when new inspirations can elevate their sights and alter their life trajectory.

Reigning Grace Ranch launched the “Be Somebody” program, curriculum based on the Cowboy Code of the West, by James Owen for the opening season. This season was the most successful season thus far at the ranch. With many new mentors from our local community, 50 kids and a new ranch to boot, it was hard to contain the excitement. It was quite a site to look out into the arena and see 20-25 horses in one session out with kids and mentors working on their lesson for the day with such love and care.
