Horses Bring Hope

Warm Beach Horsemanship is one of the few programs at Camp that can follow CDC guidelines and remain open, providing a place of hope and healing during these challenging times. Due to the restrictions caused by COVID-19 many people’s lives have been thrown into turmoil. Things we once took for granted have been stripped away from us, however amidst this turmoil there is HOPE…   

Those missing physical touch can wrap their arms around a horse and feel the comfort that comes from an embrace. Words cannot express the joy and healing that comes from a deep connection with a horse.   

Those who miss friends can find community and camaraderie in seeing the other students in their lesson group each week, while maintaining safe distancing of course. We were not made to be alone or to face life’s struggles without support; we need connection with others.   

Those who are facing overwhelming stress can find a moment of freedom as they slow down and do something they enjoy. Being with a horse and taking in the breathtaking beauty of God’s creation here seems to make time stand still. Having the chance to pause and breathe provides refreshment, renewal, and the strength to continue on. 

Those who are struggling emotionally or mentally can find a safe place that offers support and encouragement. Here you are seen, here you are valued, here you are respected, and here you are loved. The staff and horses partner together to lift the spirits of all who come to the Warm Beach Stables.   

Those who are looking for new experiences can learn how to ride a horse through the many programs offered. Warm Beach Horsemanship provides lessons in horse care, western riding, English riding, jumping, horse-assisted learning, therapeutic riding, and therapeutic vaulting.   

If you are seeking ways to find connection, purpose, hope or healing consider joining the Warm Beach Horsemanship “family” by registering for lessons. https://www.warmbeach.com/camps/horsemanship/

Ministry is the Connection Between Instructor and Student

About a year ago, a wonderful 85-year-old grandmother entered my life. She approached us with the interest of taking riding lessons after many years of being out of the saddle. Inez grew up with horses and even raised a horse from a foal to his last day on earth. Her daughter was involved in a local Pony Club and Inez had ridden until her kids moved on to adulthood. She deeply missed riding and the bond that comes with riding ...

Hearing from God

The past year has been difficult, bringing physical challenges, relationship losses, and employment transitions. My husband and I came to Warm Beach Camp & Conference Center for several reasons. One of the most important was to hear from God. One of the things I appreciate most about Warm Beach, is it provides the perfect environment to listen to God’s voice. I hear His laughter in the sound of children at play and see His joy on the faces of little ...

Trust in Hope

Hope in the context of the Bible is not the same as hope in the context of our current culture. Our culture often uses hope as wishful thinking, "I hope so…." Biblical hope, on the other hand, is an assurance of a promise that will come to pass! Down at the Stables, we have another "Hope" I'd like you to get to know. A large, beautiful, gentle giant of a draft horse named Hope. As an equine partner in our ...
