Les Price – Boys Mentor and Case Manager

It’s been an honor and a blessing to be part of Riverbend Ranch. I believe that my experience and education allows me to be a good fit for the privilege of working with young men and horses here at this awesome place.
Being able to combine leadership with horses is an incredibly rewarding experience.

I have had fun with many hobbies, like skydiving, scuba diving, and kayaking, just to name a few. But my heart has always been living and working in the country. Where family, faith, and friends are important.

My prayers are that God will continue to use me and guide me in areas that I can be used to help make a difference in some capacity.

Thank you for taking the time to look at Riverbend Ranch, and if you have any questions, please let us know.
