Flying 7 Ranch for Youth is a working cattle and horse ranch located in Southeast Idaho.
The youth program at the ranch will provide your son with a unique, lifetime experience while working on the ranch.
# We will only take 5 young men at a time which provides great one on one attention for each youth.
# Achievement by the youth will be based on their own goals.
# This ranch is an established, working cattle and horse ranch not a makeshift outfit created so we could have a youth ranch.
# The ranch staff will be made up of the cowhands, horse trainers, and athletic coaches from the Harrigfeld family


* We accept applicants anytime of the year since each program is individualized.
* Parents will be sent an admission packet.
* Applicants will be evaluated as to their specific needs, history, and recommendations by parents and professionals.

Schooling needs will be met through the special needs program at the local high school. However, they will be schooled at the ranch again guaranteeing one on one attention.

The schedule will be flexible to allow time for the needs of the boys. Such as therapy, etc. Sometimes the ranch work itself will necessitate flexibility in scheduling, for example, during calving and foaling times, we may have to be with an animal during unscheduled times.

The boys will set goals for responsibility, accomplishment, and good behavior. When goals are reached, there will be rewards, such as being assigned their own horse for a project, horse back rides, participation in round-ups, etc. A journal will be kept to tract their progress and experiences.

Cory is our around-the-clock licensed professional therapist (L.L.P.C.) with experience in family counseling and is currently a high school counselor. He will assist our students with individual therapy and treatment plans, as well as family therapy to improve relationships in the home.

There are other professionals, full-time therapists, teachers, physicians, volunteers, and other members of the family who will be involved on the ranch as needed.

The ranch is located outside of Idaho Falls, Idaho in the great Snake River Valley. Wildlife and great scenery abound. We are very close to Yellowstone Park and Jackson Hole. The staff at Flying 7 Ranch has over 30 years experience in coaching at the high school level and over 35 years experience working with youth, including other youth ranches and wilderness programs.
