Marie LaRock was volunteering at Horse Power, an equestrian non-profit who serve people with disabilities in Sioux Falls when she felt the nudge to have this opportunity close to home. She was in shopping and found the print with horses and the quote, " Life is a journey, follow me and I will lead you" that she knew she had to take the chance to build Rock Ranch. Marie shared the vision with her husband Dan. Dan knew with his business background and Marie's passion for horses and serving others, Marie's vision was possible. Rock Ranch started in 2016 by serving 50-60 kids and now has certified equestrian counseling, Senior Saddles, Women's group and over 3,000 visitors a year. Marie develops curriculum to help children learn while enjoying time on a horse. With the growth of Rock Ranch, Dan and Marie employee 4 full time employees and have 5 contracted employees. Marie and Dan shared helpful advice for the young professionals as they begin their class business but also for their life journey. Thanks to Dan and Marie for a great morning.
