Antora Youth Ranch

Meet the Staff at Antora

All of our staff and gatekeepers are fully vetted and background checked. Each receives on-going training in Kindred Dialect Horsemanship and Trust Based Relational Intervention (TBRI). Below are brief bios of our co-directors.

Rebecca Curtis: Co-Director

Having been raised in Gunnison, Colorado, from the age of three, Becky grew up with a love for animals, large and small, as well as a soft spot for vulnerable people. After a few years spent traveling and dabbling in college classes, she returned to Gunnison and graduated from Western Colorado University with a degree in Communication & Theater. In 2010 Becky married Clay Curtis and they were licensed as a foster home less than ten months later. She and Clay have since adopted five children, added three biological children to their family, and fostered many others. Becky has received hundreds of hours of training in trauma informed care and has a passion for making people feel seen and valued. After she and Clay received horsemanship training, they co-founded Antora Youth Ranch at their home in Doyleville, Colorado.

Clay Curtis: Co-Director

Born and raised in Gunnison, Colorado, Clay grew up in a rural neighborhood and developed a love for outdoor adventure. After graduating from college at Mesa State University, he returned to Gunnison to pursue a career in law enforcement, eventually marrying Becky and becoming the early intervention program manager for juvenile services for Gunnison County as well as one of three individuals in Western Colorado qualified to teach TBRI (Trust Based Relational Intervention). After hundreds of hours of training in trauma-informed care, ten years of experience working with at-risk youth through foster care, adopting five children, and adding three biological children to their family, Clay, along with Becky, received horsemanship training to prepare them to co-found Antora Youth Ranch at their home in Doyleville, Colorado.
