Horses: Life Impact

If you have ever felt a horse’s warm breath on your skin or breathed in their scent as you hugged their neck while laying your head on their side, you will know that horses have a way of reaching deep into your soul. They bringing comfort to places in your heart that may be buried under layers of grief, bitterness, rejection, fear, or hurt. Our goal at Warm Beach Horsemanship is to provide as many opportunities as possible for people in our community to experience the impact of connecting with a horse.

One of the unique things about the Warm Beach Horsemanship Program is that we serve such a variety of people. We have students ranging in ages from 4 to 80; with physical abilities ranging from able-bodied to wheelchair-bound; those from broken families; foster and adopted children; and those learning skills to assist in navigating mental health, autism and ADHD. Through serving these incredible students we see the healing power of horses and community, and we are blessed to support and witness the strength, persistence, and courage they demonstrate throughout the lesson session.

Horses and horsemanship teach an abundance of life lessons including trust, team building, relational skills, character, cooperation, camaraderie, and communication. Horses don’t judge by the clothes we wear, where we come from, or the experiences we have had. They just see the human in front of them in that moment- someone in need of love, someone going through a tough time, or someone ready for adventure. As the connection grows between a horse and participant we see the beauty of healing, trust and relationship that develops, and we know this moment in time will have a life-long impact.

The Warm Beach horses are partners in the ministry that occurs here daily, and it is of utmost importance they are cared for in a way that shows how much they are treasured. Would you partner with us by helping fund the annual vaccinations the horses need to keep healthy?

Permission to Rest is Granted

This morning, in my time with God by the morning fire, the message was simple and clear: You have been granted permission to rest. Yet, the real challenge for me, and perhaps you too, is to receive and take the rest that has been generously granted to you and me. Will you take a few minutes to reflect with me on what God has to say about different types of rest? Scripture • For the weary person carrying heavy burdens ...

Just a Hint of Heaven

In Mark 6:30, Jesus called His disciples to “come away and rest by yourselves.” It was an invitation to separate themselves from the work of the Kingdom, from the press of the crowds, and from daily cares. And best of all, they got to just be with Jesus. That’s what coming to Warm Beach Camp has felt like for me personally. It’s been an invitation to come away and spend time with Jesus. I have been attending family camps at ...

Words from the Heart

For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved. Romans 10:10 NLT https://bible.com/bible/116/rom.10.10.NLT The writer of the book of Romans is sharing words from his heart. He wants everyone to understand the way to be made right with God. He longs for everyone to be saved. Listen to what is being said: Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and ...
