We have moved - now we need to finish building out our Forever Home!
The need for our own facility became evident as our wait list for sessions exceed 20 months and 140 individuals at the end of 2022. This exceedingly growing need prompted a series of events only God Himself could have orchestrated. After two years of prayer for land, 15 acres of land was purchased and deeded to Freedom Reigns Ranch by Joseph Ware and Helion Group in November 2022. An additional 25 acres adjoining the gifted land was dedicated on a "lifetime lease" at no cost for Ranch purposes.
Through Groove Life, a matching grant of $53,500 was offered and met in October 2022 for the basic necessary infrastructure (power, water, fencing, and a parking lot.)
Funds for the barn and covering for the arena were pledged by long time supporter Teresa Jaeckle, The Jaeckle Centre and construction will begin August 1, 2023. Meanwhile, we are operating with a small 4 stall barn that was generously donated and then assembled by volunteers.
Basic infrastructure was completed in May 2022 and fundraising for the remaining need (Phase 2) to complete our project which will include the build out of the barn, footing and drainage for the riding arena, a round pen, and fencing of an additional 6 acres of pasture.
Anticipating full funding, our estimated Grand Opening will be September 30, 2023. Can you help that happen with a donation toward one of these areas to sponsor?
Ways you can help
Pray for favor for Freedom Reigns Ranch and that the fundraising process will change lives. Your prayers will help lay the foundation for this new chapter for the Ranch.
Rally your friends and family to help raise funds through social media, email, text, and word of mouth. Invite your church, youth group, school, clubs, and favorite local businesses to show their support. Even a little bit of help makes a huge difference!
If God is leading you to partner with Freedom Reigns Ranch financially, you can do that through a one-time gift, monthly gift, Facebook fundraiser, or community fundraiser. We also have gift-based naming opportunities (below), where you can name one of the new Ranch facilities in honor of someone you love.
Thank you for your prayers, support, and gifts!

An opportunity to leave a permanent legacy of hope.
When you give at crucial levels and to strategic places on the new Ranch property, you have a huge impact on helping Freedom Reigns fill our need for a fully equipped, forever home.
We’ve created naming opportunities that allow you to donate a set amount and name one of our new Ranch facilities in honor of someone you love. As a special thank-you, we’ll memorialize each gift with a permanent, custom plaque in the sponsored area.
We will continue this campaign until the funding need is met. Gift amounts range from $2,750 to $100,000. We will provide you with a letter of recognition for tax purposes within 10 days of receiving your gift, as well as annual giving reports (mailed January for the previous calendar year).
We love keeping our followers up-to-date on everything happening at Freedom Reigns Ranch. We changed our Facebook and Instagram feeds to black and white and as we raised the necessary funding for our forever home, we slowly brought back color. This change symbolizes restoring hope and echoes the video below:
