Six Foot social distancing will be required.

Everyone on the premises is to remain at least six feet from one another to the maximum extent possible, including through the use of ground markings, signs, and physical barriers as appropriate to any activities.

Face coverings are required to be worn when staff and volunteers cannot consistently remain six feet from other individuals such as saddle safety check and during the mounting process. Hands will be sanitized during the safety check between riders.

Our Programs


We function off of an amazing group of teens and adults who volunteer their time to serve God and enable our ministry to run smoothly.  We welcome people of all horsemanship levels.

Riding Lessons

Have you always wanted to learn how to ride a horse?  Are you an experienced rider needing to learn new skills?  We offer lessons for beginners through advanced riders.  Come on out today!

Horse Clinics

During our day clinics, students will not only be challenged in their own horsemanship abilities, but also in their personal walk with God.  We offer clinics for riders of all levels.

Horse Rescue

We try to rescue at least one horse a year.  After rehabilitation, we either adopt them out to loving homes or keep them in the program.

Special Needs

Students get to ride and groom at their own pace, as well as participate in other activities to learn about horses and horse care.


Another aspect of our program is instructing in the basics of the Christian faith, either mixed into our programs or as a stand alone class.
