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.)
Basic infrastructure was completed in May 2022 and funds for the barn and covering for the arena were pledged by long time supporter Teresa Jaeckle, and the barn build completed in October 2023. A small 4 stall barn that was generously donated and then assembled by volunteers.
Rogers Group generously donated all rock, gravel, and sand to build up the parking lot, driveway, arena base, and arena for the property.
Fundraising for the remaining need (Phase 2-B): which will include the build out of the barn (tack room, stalls, feed room, etc), drainage for the riding arena, a round pen, and fencing of an additional 6 acres of pasture is in progress. Our need is to complete Phase 2-B by the time Spring session season begins in February 2024.
The final initial building phase (Phase 3) will include a septic system, culvert, and landscaping to fully outfit the facility. Our goal is to complete phase 3 by the end of 2024.
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.

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.
