About HopeWell Ranch


HopeWell Ranch is a non-profit organization that desires, through the use of donated and rescued horses, to reach out to children and adults, as well as our beloved Veterans, who may have emotional, spiritual, physical and social needs. It is our goal to offer them the unconditional love of a horse and caring staff, as an example of Christ's love, to help facilitate healing and the restoration of hope for their future.
Participation in our riding programs can provide emotional benefits such as self-confidence, independence, self-worth, self-esteem, improved social skill, responsibility and increased attention span. Physical benefits include increased balance, coordination, flexibility, mobility, circulation and improved muscle tone.
Working with equines and the social interaction between riders can greatly benefit the body, mind and spirit.

Late this afternoon we were hosting an EAGALA session when a storm came through. The noise of hail hitting the arena roof was thunderously loud. At first the horses were frightened and then they settled down and decided to watch! The gray in this picture isn't fog but hail that eventually turned into an extremely hard rain. If say it was quite an experience!

It is such a beautiful thing to behold-the love of a horse for their human and a human for their horse! ❤️

HopeWell Ranch FuN FaCtS: Arabian Horses! This breed came from the Arabian Peninsula and are well known for their dished or concave faces, large eyes, and the high carriage of their tails when they run! Most have 16 vertebrae where other breeds have 17! These very intelligent horses once lived in tents with their owners to prevent being stolen so they had to be gentle and good natured! These traits make them noble and beautiful companions! HopeWell Ranch is blessed to have two beautiful Arabians on site: Chebar and Opie! They both have their own fans and are well loved!! ❤️
