Combining my faith & love for horses by serving at-risk 
children, teens & adults

The ranch is an outreach ministry and a fully functional not-for-profit horse ranch located on picturesque scenic twenty acres in a rural town in northern Indiana. The ranch offers a peaceful sanctuary- like setting complete with a small creek winding through wooded areas, grassy pastures, wooded hiking trails, challenging bike trails, vegetable gardens, twenty flower gardens and a fruit garden. There is a wooden foot bridge over the creek which allows guests to use the entire property. Organizations utilize the ranch facilities as a means of both therapy and recreation. Activities include: family friendly and child friendly animal interaction, basic horseback riding instruction and the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of God’s creation found in nature.

In 2012 over 700 people visited the ranch
