Horse Sponsorship Opportunities
By sponsoring a horse you will be helping Sweetwater Youth Ranch continue to serve families at no charge to them. We love staying connected with those who choose to support the ministry at the Ranch through the Horse Sponsorship program. To show appreciation for this kind gift, each sponsorship will receive a 4×6 picture of your horse, a Ranch T-shirt, and a quarterly update on your sponsored horse.
Your sponsorship will provide aid for the following:
- Countless hours one-on- one with a child and leader
- Daily engagement both physically and mentally
- Lots of grooming, baths and carrots
- Daily hay and grain as needed
- Vitamins and supplements as needed
- Regular preventative vaccinations
- Hoof trimming and shoeing as needed
- Tack and equipment replacement and repair
At this time we have 10 horses that we use for the program in different ways and at different times. The horses used most often for sessions are:
BISCUIT – Biscuit is a Morgan horse in his mid 20’s. He has had more children on his back and under his belly than any horse I know! He loves attention and carrots and gets plenty!
CHANCE – Chance is a 14 year old Morgan horse who got his name, as we were told, because he got a second chance as he was rescued just before going to slaughter at an early age. Chance is exceptional. He reminds us of Biscuit in many ways. He has a great disposition and is quickly winning the hearts of many children. He was donated to us from a lady that had cared for him 5 years and dearly loved him. Due to health issues she could no longer ride him and wanted him to have a job.
LOUIE – Louie is our 16 year old Appaloosa /Arabian cross. Louie is just Louie. If he thinks you have food he will follow you anywhere!
JACK – Jack is a 14 year old Haflinger. We call him our Gentle Giant. Everyone that sits on his back agrees it’s like riding a couch! He rides, he pulls a wagon and we paint him every chance we get!
BO and LUKE – Our little miniature horse mascots. Many days they greet you at the door! Very often mini’s are temperamental but these little guys are very gentle and tolerant. They are adorable and I’m pretty sure they KNOW it!
