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.

“No man is a failure who has friends.” (Clarence from It’s a Wonderful Life. ) These two lovelies shared pasture space for a long time and it was so sweet to see them enjoying a drink of fresh water together this morning.
Praying for y’all to have a day of rest, time of reflection, peace, and most of all love. ♥️
Our horses really know how to make people happy!! In this photo Linda seems to be making Justice smile! 😊♥️
Today a young lady came for her EAGALA session confident and happy to spend time with our horses. Weeks before she was unsure and timid around the horses and our team who only wanted peace to replace the chaos of trauma and pain she lived with daily. Slowly, quietly the horses came to her requesting her to trust and believe. Believe in herself, believe in them. Her heart began to open, actions followed. Today she spoke of finishing high school and then going to college. Her voice sounded positive...filled with hope...and the belief in herself that she can. 💕
Spent the morning learning how to connect non profit organizations at the Mary Ellen Brandel Volunteer Center at Central Michigan University! HopeWell Ranch has been amazingly blessed by the University’s students and faculty throughout the years! We are very excited to see how we can connect even more! #fireupchips
