About HopeWell Ranch
HopeWell Ranch is a non-profit organization that desires, through the use of rescued horses, to reach out to children and people 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

Yesterday I had the lovely privilege to be a fill in guest speaker at the Mt. Pleasant Rotary. What a truly caring and kind group of people. They blessed me by their attention, questions, and support of what we do at HopeWell Ranch. I was able to share about our summer season and highlight Project Solomon. The photo is of Robin Duthie President of Mt. Pleasant Rotary and US Representative John Moolenaar. (He was a guest also and he really appreciates what we do!). I love our civic organizations that do so much for our community!
Pumpkin our cat loves to climb! He decided the hitching post Blessing was attached to was another grand adventure! Needless to say we all breathed a sigh of relief that he didn't decide to jump on Blessing! Glad we avoided that rodeo! 😀
I'd like to highlight Deacon today. This past week was our final week of our summer sessions and it can be hard for our volunteers, participants, to transition to the next new thing. I experience this right along with our incredible volunteers and all the precious children. I believe Deacon sensed that things were difficult for me and being the big horse he is he came up behind me allowing me to feel how solid he is. He brought his head around me and looked at me as if to say, "It's going to be alright." The last equine to help me in this manner was Bubba Jack. I am always so blessed by how these animals know what we need. I thank God daily for allowing me to see Him. I see Him in the faces of those around me both human and animal alike. He is so good and faithful. ❤️
