  1. Thank you very much for posting my Cowboy Poetry. There are two others on my site that you may really enjoy; Temper & Hope. Feel free to check them out. By the way, I really enjoy your post and I am looking for others to read. So I would appreciate recommendations. God bless.

  2. I have been priviledged myself to know of the healing benefits of working with horses in several different states over the years. Autistic children are often incredibly helped through equine activities.

    • Yes this particular ranch has helped so many kids…they (Meeders and their staff) are amazing people. The ranch started out as a cinder pit that Troy and Kim brought to life with much work. Kim relays a story in her book of a boy who would not talk, always looked at the ground and lived in fear. Kim got him to talk and do many other things. His dad punched his teeth out…dad also made him walk around the yard and shot at him with a pistol. The first time and the second time I heard Kim tell this story, I was in tears…as well as when I read it in her book. Kims books are very touching and very inspiring.
      Thanks for the comment Rose.

  3. Sounds like a wonderful ministry, Greg. I enjoyed viewing the photos and learning about it. I agree with granbee. I’ve worked with Autistic children and this would be a great place for them to visit. I don’t have much experience riding horses, but I have a few friends that are actively involved and talk a great deal about it’s benefits.

    • If you are interested Kim and Troy Meeder have been on Focus on the Family a couple times, ans she has written three books I believe. Kim is a very dynamic speaker. Troy led the worship concert when I was there it was awesome! I would have loved to have done this, but it is not meant to be. I have a very good friend with an autistic child, and one of my sons may be high functioning autistic.

      Thanks for the comment Danielle. 🙂
