Our Horses

Horse Sponsorship


At the heart of the Ranch is our horses. Horses are what often draw participants to the Ranch, they're who God uses to help break down barriers very quickly to allow hope to enter a hurting heart. Horse Sponsorship is the primary way we are able to fund the work done at the Ranch, continuing to offer mentor sessions completely free-of-charge to all who come.

Foster Horses and Former Session Horses

Freedom Reigns Ranch always keeps a spot open for a foster horse from Hickory Hill Farm—a local, well-run rescue organization that coordinates with law enforcement to help horses from animal cruelty cases. Our partnership with Hickory Hill allows each organization to do what we do best: Hickory Hill handles all the details of rescue, and Freedom Reigns rehabilitates the horses to help get them ready for adoption.

Taking in rescue horses helps rescue people, too. Participants gain powerful hands-on experience in the redemption process, and horses thrive under the love and care of our volunteers. While we occasionally keep a foster horse, our main goal is to help find them a home where they will thrive and be loved for the rest of their life.

 

Occasionally, we bring in a Session Horse who is only with us for a season. They love working in Sessions for a time and then their health requires them to retire or we learn they need a different work setting to really thrive. Those horses are adopted out to great homes where they are able to work at a level that is best for them. We are honored to have had them at the Ranch.

 

These are horses that Freedom Reigns Ranch has had the opportunity to love:

In Loving Memory of Bob - Beloved Session Horse

DOB: Jan 1st, 2003

Breed: Mustang

Height: 15 hh

Arrived: August 13, 2021

Ran Strong and Free: August 30, 2022 

Bob (a.k.a. “Bobbio” because of his long, flowing mane) was a Mustang who spent the first six months of his life in the wild before he was gathered from Salt Wells Creek, Wyoming. Bob’s first owner adopted him from a Mustang holding facility and trained him as a heeling rope horse. Then, Bob went to a new owner, who let him live a cushy lifestyle as a companion, super fun trail mount, and mounted patrol training partner. Unfortunately, a major change in their life situation forced Bob’s owner to make some tough financial decisions—and that meant Bob needed a new home. He was donated to Freedom Reigns Ranch, his owner gaining comfort in knowing he would help so many people. Bob had a "Gentle Giant" personality and won the hearts of everyone he came in contact with.

Bob passed away from an intense battle with colic surrounded by people who loved him. He left many broken hearts behind but we are so grateful for the time we had with our sweet Bob.

Well done, Bob. You are free again.
