Help us build Puzzle Ranch for special needs kids








Hello everyone, and thank you for taking your time to know about us and our journey. We are a family of 7, including my husband, Abner and me, Cameron. We have a 22 year old amazing daughter, Jane, and 4 bundles of joy boys, Alex 15, Matthew and Michael 9, and Elijah 7. Our 4 boys are autistic, yes all four!
Having to search and use every resource, therapies, and advice from medical experts and other families with kids with autism, we found that horses give everyone peace and relaxation, especially autistic and individuals with disabilities. It is amazing what an impact a horse can have on an individual with special needs. The moment they get close to the horse and touch it you see them smile, their behavior changes and they feel the love and protection from the horse. We recently acquired a 5 acre property in Sorrento, Florida and have our 9 horses in the property.
The impact that these horses have with our kids is amazing and we want to share that experience with other families with individuals with disabilities. So we decided to create a horse ranch / cowboy town that families with special need kids can come and have that amazing experience with the horses. We started building some structures and preparing the land.  Having the four autistic boys, each a piece of a puzzle, and all four together creating a puzzle we decided to call our dream place "Puzzle Ranch". We will be building a small cowboy town so parents and kids feel they are in the wild west era while having fun with the horses, goats, cow, pigs, rabbits, chickens, and tortoises.
a fire pit for cold days and roasting marshmallows, a picnic area, cowboy saloon for refreshments, horse barn to get close to the horses, trails for horse back riding, rope course for kids and adults, with ziplines. In addition to the fun during the day we will have four old style cowboy cabins to stay overnight. We will be selecting random families to stay a night. Also will have a Native American area with teepees to camp overnight. What a place for families to enjoy!! We want to do this at no cost to the families, so we need your donations to help us build Puzzle Ranch and to help provide them service, food, property and horses care.
Now we are building the horses stables, western chapel, and playground, and need electric connections to bring power to that part of the property. We will be taking donations for those who would like to help make this happen, and when the place is completed, we will take donations to use the Puzzle Ranch for private events, weddings, birthdays or family reunions to help maintain the ranch and the animals. Thank you for taking your time to know about us and Puzzle Ranch. And thank you for your donations. We will be posting the build progress in our social media pages. Contact us for any additional info. Thank you and lots of blessings to you all!
