The Leaning Post Ranch (LPR) is a project of Panhandle Youth Assistance Program, Inc.
(PYAPI), a 501 (C) (3) non-profit organization licensed by the state of Florida as a
prevention program.

The Leaning Post Ranch began in 1992 with one gang member and one horse. After several successes with at-risk youth the outreach program expanded to provide therapeutic riding for disabled individuals, to include the mentally, cognitive, and/ or physically challenged. Continual growth of the program resulted in seven moves, until 2001, when the current 40-acre property was acquired in Molino. This location, formerly a stagecoach stop, includes a small farmhouse, a 100 year-old barn, and traces of the stagecoach road dating back to 1806.

The Leaning Post Ranch is a Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, International (PATH) Premier Accredited Center. Our facility adheres to PATH standards for safety and high quality service. Our therapy horses are gentle, intelligent animals that provide unconditional compassion to our riders.

MISSION STATEMENT: To provide equine assisted activites and therapeutic riding to
individuals with disabilities and at-risk youth in Northwest Florida.
We offer health, hope and healing through horses.


With the help of Wordwalk there has been a lot of recent growth at the ranch...including the construction of a new Tool Shed and Pole Barn.
