"The essential joy of being with horses is
that it brings us in contact
with the rare elements of grace, beauty,
spirit and freedom" — Sharon Ralls Lemon

Volunteers are love in motion!

A dog may be a man's best friend…
but a horse is a girl's best friend.

"The program has changed my life
for the better in so many ways."

"Horses change lives. They give our young people confidence and self-esteem.

They provide peace and tranquility to troubled souls. They give us hope!"
— Toni Robinson

"My sister Rachel found her passion and her voice with horses."
— Elle Covey

“Don’t walk behind me. I may not lead.
Don’t walk in front of me. I may not follow.
Just walk beside me and be my friend.” — Albert Camus

"A barn is a sanctuary in an unsettled world, a sheltered place
where life's true priorities are clear. When you take a step back,
it's not just about horses—it's about love, life and learning." — Lauren Davis Baker
