Kassidy has been around Hope Ranch since the beginning. She is the one responsible for the name it currently has. Kassidy sat on the Board of Directors and worked on details of the program as a young girl. In 2016, she took over as Program Coordinator and has not looked back since. The program has flourished under her leadership. She is now the Director of Therapeutic Riding at Hope Ranch Therapeutic Riding Center – Manhattan, the newly formed Hope Ranch Therapeutic Riding Center – Topeka, and the Horse Program for Mission Creek Camp.
