about us

The Legacy Ranch was established in 2017 to provide Equine-Assisted Therapy to the Chicagoland area. 

We provide EAGALA-certified mental health therapy that includes interaction with the horses. This type of experiential therapy has been scientifically-proven to help heal individuals who have not previously seen success with traditional talk therapy. 

Additionally, we provide Therapeutic Riding services via Holistic Riding.

We hold Corporate Team-Building sessions with the animals and activities to get your group working together and having fun!

The Legacy Ranch also provides riding lessons, parties and events.





Our dream of creating this facility came from the tragic death of our dear friend, Anne Swaney, who was an avid equestrian and philanthropist. We are proud to provide her with a living legacy that honors her memory and continues to further her belief that horses can heal and all people deserve help.

Through our 501(c)3 Non-Profit Organization, The Anne Elizabeth McComb Swaney Foundation, we provide opportunities for those in need to get the help they deserve even if they are unable to afford the therapy on their own. Veterans groups, foster children and others with special needs will have the opportunity to heal with the horses with the help of the generous donors who have helped make The Legacy Ranch a reality.
