Open Ranch Day Highlights!

Over 170 guests and volunteers enjoyed a day of fun in the sun together!  Although we had a snowstorm the day before, Praise God that Sunday afternoon was brimming with new and returning Guided Hope friends.  Kids and adults enjoyed horseback rides.  Baby goats got lots of hugs.  New chicks came out to play.  Llamas showed off their fiber.  Ace archers flew arrows.  Painters decorated barn boards and birdhouses for our new Hope Trail.  Not to mention cupcake decorating for Butterscotch’s birthday!  Many thanks to our amazing volunteers who gave their time and energy to keep everything safe and fun!  It was a blessed day.  We hope to see many families returning for summer Roundups!

Merry Christmas! 2016 Highlights!

We are thankful for an amazing year at Guided Hope!

In 2016, over 300 Roundup and Ranch Hand opportunities were shared with new and returning guests! This summer, we added a new Junior Roundup program. Numerous children worked with wonderful, caring Wrangler volunteers on chores and riding skills. Some came for a time of refreshment and service, while others were in the midst of difficult challenges and saw an opportunity for hope and encouragement. One beautiful mom shared, “I happened to just stumble on this amazing place by the grace of God. This was a beautiful time for my children and I….Thank you Guided Hope for giving us a place to find sanctuary through hard times, thank you for loving us.” We hope they can return soon!
Serving is a vital part of our program. Numerous “Ranch Hands” volunteer their time to muck stalls, stack hay, host at events, clean pens, and much more! Families of all ages, Girl Scouts, Eagle Scouts, youth groups, […]
