Blessing Our Military Families

When Darlene, a military wife and mom from Fort Hood, Texas, learned that her husband was going to be deployed this summer, she knew it was going to be hard.

Matching campers’ and horses’ personalities doesn’t always play out like you would imagine though. For example, this particular morning, Tim ‘Swanee’ Alderson, Head Wrangler, matched one timid little girl to Shadrack, one of the more confident, faster horses so she wouldn’t fall behind during the trail ride and have to worry about staying up with the group. The wranglers want the riders to […]
