Serving at Guided Hope

We have been blessed with a generous donation for supplies and repurposed materials.  Now, we need you!  It is our hope to make this a community service project that will benefit our Guided Hope guests for years to come.  Our goal date for completion is May 28th, with our grand opening scheduled for June 10th!  More information about the Hope Trail plans may be found on our website blog.  Click here to scroll through the slideshow.

We need 1-2 men/older teens to serve alongside Guy for a morning, afternoon, or full day, to complete a number of “stations” on the trail.  For some of the projects, there is an option to build at your own property and bring the completed project t

Gardens, Goats, Eagle Scouts and Events!

Wow!  What a busy, blessed June we have had so far.   This week we were incredibly grateful for help from our volunteers.

* Our garden is in!  Creative use of those livestock panels from our green thumb experts 🙂

*  Meanwhile, our back pasture crew cleaned pens and the tack room.  Thank you, middle schoolers and parents!

*  Felicity had twins last night!  Our last kidding of the season.  One doeling and one buckling.  Love our floppy-eared Nubians.

*  We received our benches from Aaron!  Congratulations on completing your final Eagle Scout project!  These innovative benches/picnic tables will see daily use for years to come.   Thank you!

*  We’re prepping for tomorrow’s Hoe Down!  Join us from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. if you can!

As we continue to serve children and families in our summer Roundups, we are grateful for your support.  Thank you!

Thank you, “Keepers of the Faith” families for serving!

Scout is such a good sport with the kids! Hard to decide between painting horses and holding baby goats 🙂  We are grateful to the “Keepers of the Faith” families for serving at Guided Hope! Mucking stalls, weeding our entry path, cleaning pens, and more! Of course, we had to have some fun, too 🙂 Pictures of wheelbarrow races, egg and spoon and more to come.

Wrangler Volunteer Horsemanship Clinic

Junior and Family Roundups are open for registration! Visit our website www.guidedhope.org for details. We are getting ready for our guests with our Wrangler Volunteer Horsemanship Clinics. This past Saturday started with a cold rain, but that didn’t stop our amazing volunteers from coming out for training! We’re grateful God is providing rain for our hay crop. Fortunately, the rain let up in time for us to practice outside. More trainings are planned if you’d like to apply as a Wrangler Volunteer. Details are on our website. Join our GH Team in serving children and families in our community!

Wrangler Horsemanship Clinic!

New and returning Wranglers!  We are having a Guided Hope Horsemanship Clinic on May 14th, from 9:00 – 11:30 a.m.  Registration is required.  To apply as a new Wrangler, click on “Be Involved” for more information or contact Kaarin at 303-717-8372.  This class will be a fun day of fellowship with other volunteers while reviewing our GH policies and procedures, role playing scenarios with children and adults, discussing our summer schedule, and training those new to horses about safe horsemanship practices.  We ask that you plan to commit to serving with at least three Roundups this summer.  We hope to see you there!
