fax (720) 851-7679.


If you are sending a letter or fax please include:

- Who has referred you - name, address, and phone number.


- Date your letter - this determines the client's placement.


- The prospective client's name, address, phone number, age, weight, height and special needs.

Classes at Praying Hands Ranch are five days a week, Monday through Thursday and on Saturday. Classes are one hour in length and are generally held from 10:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.  Some days we have late afternoon classes available, depending on our clients' needs. 


Equine sessions with riding instructors are eight weeks long and are Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall.  Hippotherapy sessions on a one-to-one basis with a therapist are ongoing.  Registrations are now being taken.


A Physical Therapist Evaluation may be necessary before assigning a client to a class, so please include any personal information that would help us to place your client's special needs in Equine or Hippotherapy programs.


Please note, due to safety precautions for both clients and horses, we are no longer able to take clients over the age of 70, or in excess of 180 pounds.


If we are able to place your client, please be advised and prepared by wearing proper attire and sturdy shoes. You may be needed to assist in your client's class as a volunteer.


For more information regarding our programs or assistance with the prospective client registration process, please contact the Ranch at 303-841-4043, or email
