Meet Our Two-Legged Mentors
Meet Our Four-Legged Mentors
Cheer ~~ is our "gentleman" of the herd. He is a sociable 6 year old chestnut thoroughbred who loves to follow you around. Cheer came to us with his half brother, Ra Ra, and has been a sweet addition to the HIS Haven Ranch herd. His eyes are full of wisdom and hope. Although he hasn't completed his training yet, he has shown to be a quick learner on the lunge line and under saddle. He brings a quick smile to many faces as he easily finds his way into your heart with his charming personality.
Gem~~is our gentle giant. She is a towering 16 hand, 18 year old palomino quarter horse with a flowing blonde mane and tail! When Gem first came to us,she would follow my young daughter and lower her head so she would appear smaller. So gentle, loving and kind. Her name means “righteous” and holds this promise: to bring good news to the afflicted (Isaiah 61:1). Gem does just that with her quiet confidence.
Zibah~~ came to us with the name Abby, however, after riding her and feeling the delight of the Lord rise up within me, her name quickly became Hephzibah (Zibah for short) which means “the Lord’s delight is in her” from Isaiah 62:4. She is eager to please and always willing to work hard. Zibah is our smallest horse standing at only 14 hands high with the BIGGEST attitude! Zibah has recently lost her left eye due to a chronic condition in horses known as uveitis. She is adjusting well with the love and prayers of her two-legged friends. God is good!!
Katie~~ is our most reserved horse at the Ranch. She is an 18 year old quarter horse bay with lots of experience. She loves being brushed and talked to. Her attitude is very calm and relaxed. Even though Katie is a tall mare standing just shy of 16 hands, she has a very gentle heart that seems to listen knowingly. Her name means "spotless" and "unblemished." We are blessed by her sweet attitude that is able to touch and soothe our spirits.
Ginger~~ is a faithful friend and a great listener, with her big eyes with a dash of blue in them hanging on every word spoken. Ginger is an 18 year old Arabian mare who absolutely loves her people! She has been known to "hug" you with her neck wrapped around you as you talk to her. Ginger lives up to her name which means "pure" and "respectful." She is always the first horse with her head swung over her stall wall ready for a love pat.
Ra Ra~~is our "casa nova" and definitely our most animated horse! He is a 6 year old thoroughbred bay (half brother to our Cheer) with striking white markings on his face and legs. His personality is as big as he is tall, standing at 17 hands. He also is still in training and learning the ropes to being a therapy horse. He brings much joy and laughter into the barn! We look forward to how Ra will serve the Kingdom of God in the years to come.
