The Ministry

Freedom Reigns Ranch

Founded October 2015 by Carissa Ramsdell, Freedom Reigns Ranch is a unique mentor-ship program whose mission is to ignite hope with the help of a horse. At the heart of the Ranch are one-on-one sessions that pair a participant, a leader, and a horse, for 90 minutes. Activities can include riding, ground and liberty work with horses, helping train and rehabilitate horses that have been rescued, hiking on the land, playing games, doing crafts, and farm chores. The session program is geared towards children and young adults who have been through trauma and other life challenges, though it is open to people from every walk of life. All free of charge.

Junior Ranchers is our volunteer group mentor-ship program for girls ages 9-15 that primarily focuses on equipping young women as strong, confident, and servant-hearted leaders. Girls commit to one full season and engage in group discipleship and horsemanship training, focused on increasing in their capacity to serve at the Ranch and competency as horsewomen.

The Ranch also hosts multiple opportunities to engage in community by facilitating bonfires, an annual fall hoedown, Christmas brunch, and multiple community work days scheduled. throughout the year.

We are a Christian, faith-based ministry that is not affiliated with any particular denomination. We seek to serve those in need 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. All Ranch programs are free of charge, no prior experience with horses is necessary, and the only requirement is that participants want to come.

We’d love for you to join us- whether by prayer, volunteering, giving talent, resources, or finances- the ranch is a community effort and your partnership helps to ensure that Hope Rides Here.
