Freedom Reigns Ranch
Sponsor a Horse
UPDATE, JULY 26, 2017: We've welcomed a new horse... and he needs sponsors! Read more about Gideon on the "Meet The Horses" page. If you'd like to contribute to horse sponsorship, please head over to the "Donate" page. We're excited to ask for you to help because we know it will mean we can serve more in our community!
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. The three primary horses we currently have at the Ranch come from a variety of backgrounds: loved and well cared for since birth, misunderstood and abused, to neglected with a completely unknown past. Often, participants end up seeing themselves in their horse's story, taking comfort in being with their new equine friend as they begin to allow some of their story to be revealed. Each horse provides 3-5 sessions per week and is loved on for countless hours longer. The long term vision for the ministry includes using rescued horses for sessions and we saw this begin in November 2016 with our first rescue "Freedom".
Though we don't subscribe to one clinician or method, we use a lot of "natural horsemanship" elements in our program. We've found that our horses respond best when we seek to understand their language- not the other way around. Often, our participants are also able to draw lessons about relationships, boundaries, being fully present/mindfulness, respect, trust, and confidence in learning how to relate to horses in this way.
Please consider how you can partner in hope and healing by sponsoring one of our "angels in horsehair". Providing each horse with hay and feed, veterinary care, necessary supplements, farrier (hoof) care, tack and extra care as needed is possible because of our incredible Equine Sponsors and we greatly appreciate every one!

Horse sponsorship is a contribution of $25-$450 per month. To show our appreciation, you will receive a photograph of your sponsored horse, a special one-of-a-kind shoe that is decorated by one of our participants who spends time with the horse you've sponsored.
This agreement in no way entitles sponsor to ownership and/or exclusive privileges in any way to sponsored animal or ranch property. Freedom Reings Ranch accepts all liability, expressed and/or implied, for sponsored equine. Sponsor has the right to cancel this agreement with a 30 day notice to Freedom Reigns Ranch by emailing freedomreignsTN@gmail.com. All monies received from sponsor to date of cancellation remain the property of Freedom Reigns Ranch. Please note that there may be more than one sponsor per equine. This is to ensure that all of our horses are cared for equally, as the funds go into an account to support our whole herd.
