Everything to support your business and to support you in the horse industry and beyond.


Deb Dyer shares the birth of professional training missions at ADVANTAGE RANCH:

It was the last day of December 1995 when I met Chris Sokol and her husband Ron. They came for a farm visit, which is one way we begin our relationships with the people joining our community. Chris was interested in riding lessons and we had a lovely and engaging conversation about all that is available from learning with horses and through horsemanship. Along the way of this conversation I shared the stories of some of our competitive youth riders, what they were up to and how it had transformed their lives.

Ron asked, “This is really important work…. Do you make any money at it?”

And I laughed and said, “The kids who most need what I do can’t afford to do it, money doesn’t grow on trees!”

Ron said, “I teach organizations how to meet those needs, and I am here to tell you that money grows on trees. What you do here is unique, and what makes it powerful is you. You need to figure out how to teach other people to do what you do, how to be who you are. Then it will grow and help kids everywhere. If you want my help, I will teach you how.”

This is the true joy of life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can.

I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no “brief candle” to me. It is a splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment, and want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.
