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 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.

So today a young lady from the CMU Broadcasting program came out with her friends to film a music video for her class. Ty and I were sharing how amazed we are by all the "extras" that have been captured here: Senior and family pictures, a wedding, a commercial for the Incredible Dr. Pol Show, a short horror spoof, and country themed photo shoots. What a blessing that we've been able to share this place with so many!! (Hannah promised to share her finished video with us!)๐Ÿ˜Š We are also VERY grateful for videos promoting the work we do here at the Ranch too! Thank you Nat Geo Wild and Ronnie B. Darmis III for doing those amazing videos for us!!

Obviously this is a summer season photo but we'd just like to give a shout out to Dr. Pol and his amazing staff!! We are INCREDIBLY blessed to have such caring people who show our animals and people such kindness! Dr. Brenda was here last week and treated Lexington for an abscess in her foot. She was terrific as usual! ๐Ÿ˜Š We are practicing "thanks-living" and truly grateful for a wonderful veterinary team! From the office people to the Vet Tech to the Doctors THANK YOU from our HopeWell Ranch family and our animals!! โค๏ธ
