OUR STORY

FROM TECH TO TENDER OF LIVESTOCK

We were born City Slickers, but snubbed the luxury of Urban Life ~

Wide Open Spaces were calling to us

Driven by passion to live The Cowboy Way of life  

The Need to be creative

Work with our hands

Use the gifts that God has blessed us with

Ability to Serve as we are able

Invest & Teach the Generations

Innovate and work smarter, not harder

Tend & Care to the Animals

Live Simply, Want less

We are still plugged into technology, yet desire a work/life balance

We chose to be here, and we are right where we should be

WHAT WE ARE NOT

  • a horse rescue  Sorry, we do not take in private owner horses, and we are not a state licensed rescue (or sanctuary). Please see your state livestock board for registered and licensed rescues if you wish to find a home for your horse.

    • Our mission is to provide education using horses purchased from a sale barn (slang- "kill pen") where they would have otherwise been sent to slaughter

  • a trail riding/or riding for hire stable - we don't rent horses

  • a boarding stable - we do not board privately owned horses.   We do have horses that you can "sponsor" while you learn horsemanship or how to drive

  • a contracted training facility - we do not train your horse for you or contract to train horses for private owners

  • a training facility for your horse We do not train your horse to drive.  The Ranch uses only their own horses to teach.  We do have a qualified instructor that we can put you in touch with and you can reach out to.

PRESS RELEASE

SaddleHawk Ranch has opened Equine Safe Haven

Equine Safe Haven is a new non-profit organization.  It is a charitable 501c3, tax exempt and tax deductible to those that donate.

We are so excited to move forward with our equine educational opportunities, that will use rescued horses, mules and donkeys, saved from slaughter, to educate people in various activities and disciplines.

Equine Safe Haven, located a SaddleHawk Ranch will be preparing for their open house and driving school community ribbon cutting in the Spring of 2023, so check back here frequently.  You may also go to Equine Safe Haven's website: www.equinesafehaven.com for more info

For now the Ranch is open to those that are staying with us through Harvest Hosts, but we will announce open house days in the near future so the community can come see us too!

We have over 75 animals here at the Ranch which include two gentled Mustangs, 3 friendly goats and 10 adorable donkeys too.

 

We will introduce you to our organically grown produce, collected honey, free ranging chickens that produce amazingly tasty and vitamin packed eggs!

 

 

Along with our 11 adorable donkeys, we have a variety of other Equines - over 22, including mules!

We have Ranch horses here, roping horses, sorting horses, trail horses, reining horses, dressage horses, horses in training!  Many compete and perform.  These are not rescues, but pedigreed and money earners.


Our focus this last year has been with carriage driving, as we have 7 Standardbreds and 1 Draft horse.  These have been trained to drive...and have driven all their lives (some are United States Trotting Association Registered- and originally raced).  Many are from the Amish areas of our Country,

 

For the horses in the driving program, we purchased them from Bowie Texas, and worked with the Barn and with help from a rescue to bring many of them here. We also have found new owners for some of the "kill pen" horses, and have transported many to new homes around the country. 

They come first to SaddleHawk and rehab, get medical attention, vaccinations, get good food, and then are enjoyed by all.  The Standardbreds especially are so well behaved we can have them in parades, driving on the roads, teaching children and novice horsepersons.  It is sheer joy and a blessing to us.

Follow us as we continue our journey with horses here at SaddleHawk Ranch
