One Participant - One Leader - One Horse - 100% of the time.
Freedom Reigns Ranch offers a unique program for applicants ages 5-35 that pairs a participant with a leader and a horse in an intentional, one-on-one mentor relationship. Individual sessions are 90 minutes in length and are scheduled per season on a monthly or bi-monthly basis.
In our mentorship Sessions, volunteer mentors teach participants about horses, how to properly care for them, basics of riding and groundwork, and, ultimately, how to build a relationship based on trust with a horse. Freedom Reigns understands that every participant deals with his or her own set of unique challenges, and session leaders work hard to adapt programming to meet those individual needs.
Our volunteer mentors help guide participants through different activities on the ranch where they can learn a healthy self-image, relational and communication skills, building trust, and setting boundaries.
Activities can include:
Ground and liberty work with a horse
Hikes on the land
To ensure that we can serve as many participants as possible in the best way possible, we require all individuals requesting sessions to fill out an application. We also require individuals to complete a waiver for participants, parents/guardians, and any Ranch visitors. Please email email@example.com with any questions.
All Ranch programs are free-of-charge. We rely on the generosity of our donors to ensure we are able to help bring hope and healing to those in our community.
Please note: we are not a professional counseling agency and operate as volunteer mentors who believe true hope and real healing are found in the person of Jesus Christ. We believe that counseling/therapy is an important aspect of healing from trauma and encourage survivors of trauma to pursue professional counseling.
