About Us

In 2011, Ohana Ranch of Maui owner, Toni Martin, started Maui Youth Ranch. Toni was inspired by the book, “Hope Rising”, written by Kim Meeder, the owner of Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch, located in Bend, Oregon. In her book, Kim shares stories of the incredible healing power that rescue horses have on emotionally and physically “broken” children and adults. Ohana Ranch has been a horse rescue facility for several years.

Toni Martin, the founder of Maui Youth Ranch discovered along with many others, that when the Creator designed the horse he put a level of intuition and empathy into the horse that any individual suffering from trauma can experience a life changing connection with the horse that allows them to realize that trauma no longer defines them. And when they connect with their self worth and self love, it is possible to live a victorious life.
