Our Horses

Wings of Hope Ranch was created to foster a safe environment in which children facing conflict or challenges come together with rescued horses to learn how to love and trust again. In the early days, Wings of Hope Ranch took in abandoned or unwanted horses from any number of sources, including the general public. As our ministry has grown (and as the number of unwanted or abandoned horses has increased) we have discovered the mutual benefit to a horse rescue facility and Wings of Hope Ranch through adoption. Between 2006 and 2016, Wings of Hope Ranch rescued, re-homed and or facilitated the adoption of over 40 horses!

We have been blessed by our relationships with the United State Equine Rescue League, Days End Farm Horse Rescue in Maryland and Roanoke Valley Horse Rescue. These outstanding non-profit organizations have the daunting task of facilitating the actual horse rescues, oftentimes a very dangerous and risky operation.  Wings of Hope Ranch becomes the actual adoption home for some of these animals after they have been vetted and evaluated for soundness and health.

Once a horse has moved to Wings of Hope Ranch and we get to know their personality and history, we evaluate whether to keep their given name (if it is Biblical), or give them one from the Bible.

Our focus at the Ranch is simply to love each horse and each child that comes to visit us and trust that God will use our horses to provide a small escape from the children’s regular world.
