The Session Program
One Participant - One Leader - One Horse - 100% of the time.
Freedom Reigns Ranch is a unique mentorship program geared towards children and teens who have been through trauma or challenging circumstances, though we open the program to people from every walk of life. We freely share the love of Christ by putting our faith into action.
The session program's primary focus is using the Ranch environment, horses and the way God created them as relational animals whose sole desire to engage is based on trust in their leader, to ignite hope in the hearts of participants who come to Freedom Reigns. Activities can include riding, ground and liberty work with horses, hiking on the land, playing games, doing crafts, and farm chores.
Freedom Reigns understands that every child deals with his or her own set of unique challenges. Session leaders work hard to adapt programming to meet the individual needs of each child. The Ranch is not a residential facility. Therefore, the majority of children in our program live in proximity to the ranch.
We are a Christian, faith-based program that is not affiliated with any particular denomination. We believe in God, that He sent His one and only Son, Jesus Christ to be our Savior, and that when we accept Him and receive His forgiveness we are adopted into the family of God and our salvation is eternally secured by His mercy.
It is out of the outpouring of gratitude from our hearts that we seek to serve those in need and we serve by putting our faith in action. We don’t “preach” but rather serve as an example and vessel for Christ’s love to flow through us.
Freedom Reigns is a safe and loving environment for kids and teens to come and experience a retreat from every-day life where, through the love of Christ, hope is restored.
Programs are free of charge operating entirely on volunteers and donations: no experience with horses is necessary and the only requirement is that participants want to come! While we do not wish to turn any child away, there are a limited number of sessions available each month. Although we cannot guarantee a session for every child who wants one, Freedom Reigns does its best to accommodate as many participants as possible while maintaining the intentionality and quality we currently have with each individual particpant.
Please note: we are not a professional counseling agency and operate as volunteer mentors who believe true hope and real healing is 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.
To ensure we are able to serve as many participants as possible and in the best way possible, an application process is utilized for all individuals requesting sessions. Please complete the application below. A waiver is also required for participants, parents/guardians, and anyone visiting the Ranch for any length of time. Please feel free to email with any questions.
