I forgot to post a HUGE announcement last week - WE'RE OFFICIALLY OPEN FOR APPOINTMENTS!!!

We love this time of year, when the requests start coming in for sessions and our horses once again get to share their vast amounts of love on all who come to see them

09/13/2014

Some days the work we do is hard. Hearing the stories of some of the young ones who come to us breaks our hearts. There are times when the sessions we do are "heavy".
Then there are FreeReign sessions like the one we had this morning with a beautiful 5th grader, Hannah, and Nami (the horse she chose to work with.) Sessions that energize you and make you laugh. Sessions that feel more "light", so to speak.
Watching Hannah begin to form a bond with Nami was wonderful. When I see a child light up from the knowledge that a horse will willingly follow them - this big, beautiful creature who could squash them like a bug - it makes my heart smile. I may be the one in the arena giving instructions and advice on what to do, but the work these horses are doing - forming bonds, offering selfless love, building self-confidence and self-worth - the role these horses have in our work, the roles they fulfill so lovingly, our four-legged creatures are the stars of the hour. Equines will never cease to amaze me.

Good job, Nami. Today your love changed a life

Hello Friends!

Would you like to learn more about the heart of our ranch? How we came to be and why we do what we do? Our Co-Founder and Executive Director, Andrea Blair, just wrote a blog post about it so be sure to check it out! And if you wouldn't mind, please pass it on to your family and friends to help us spread the word about RHYR. Thank you!!

"We believe that every person matters and that it's their own personal brand of unique that makes them so beautiful. Our main goal in serving these youth is to reach those places deep inside where those hurts linger and cover them with love and acceptance. We want every person who leaves the ranch to walk away with the knowledge that they are both wanted and valued, that this world needs them simply because they're them."

Support Rescued Hearts Youth Ranch Inc by shopping at AmazonSmile.

We have a great new opportunity for anyone who would like to help support RHYR. The best part? All you gotta do is SHOP on AmazonSmile - how easy is that?!
It works the exact same way as shopping on the regular Amazon site, only now when you purchase an item that is "smile eligible" Amazon will make a donation to RHYR. Pretty awesome, right? So please, log into your Amazon accounts and choose RHYR as your charity to support, then be sure to shop at smile.amazon.com from now on (if you shop at the regular amazon.com they don't make a donation according to your purchase(s).) That's it - easy, peasy! So please, spread the word and remember us in all your future Amazon shopping :)

When you shop at AmazonSmile, Amazon will donate to Rescued Hearts Youth Ranch Inc. Support us every time you shop.

Hey Friends!!
Have you begun to notice items around your homes that you'd really like to get rid of? Are your closets and dressers too full of clothes you don't even wear any more? Have your kids outgrown some of their toys that now just clutter up the play room? Do you have random things you no longer want but have no idea what to do with them? If so, we may have a solution for you - DONATE them to the RHYR GARAGE SALE!! :)
You can get rid of all that stuff and start the process of Spring cleaning, you'll get a receipt for your donation so you can use it as a tax write off, AND you'll be helping support our programs so we can reach more youth. Where's the downside to that?!? There isn't one :)
We'll be accepting garage sale donations on Friday and Saturday, May 2nd and 3rd. If you would like to be part of this, call us (574-825-1299) to set up a drop-off time so that we can be sure someone's available to assist you. And to all of you who choose to participate in this fundraiser, a big THANK YOU in advance!!!

You can contact us if you have any questions through FB comments or messages, you can send us an email at [email protected] , or you can call us at 574-825-1299. Whatever way works best for you. For setting up appointments, the phone's the best option as we'll need to actually talk to you for that :)

into me, breathe: a boy in need of hope

Hello Ranch Friends!
Do you ever wonder why Rescued Hearts exists? Have you ever questioned why we put in the hours of work involved in caring for our herd, all in the hopes of touching lives?
Co-Founder and Executive Director, Andrea, shared a little bit of the story of a boy she met through the ranch on her blog today.
Take a moment to read it and know that the "Levi's" of our world are the heart behind the ranch. They're why we do what we do..

You can help us spread the word by sharing this status, the link, and the blog - thanks and happy reading!

It was such an honor to be invited to the CAPS inservice meeting last night to give a presentation on who Rescued Hearts is and why we're here. It was the first time ever for our Co-Founder and Executive Director, Andrea, to speak to a group of people and share the heart of the ranch. It was a great experience for her and the feedback from the audience was very encouraging. We're looking forward to partnering up with this wonderful organization and serving youth together in the coming days!

More progress was made on the website today, woohoo!! There are now two separate slideshows published. One is of the horses hanging out with the youth who visit the ranch, "Just Doing What They Do." The other is of the horses (and Samson) just living their lives, "Horsin' Around."
Feel free to check them out, share the website, spread the word!

Hey Friends, long time no updates!!! We tend to take December and January off due to the weather (and with this year's winter weather we could probably take off through May....) but we're back to work and making plans, getting things accomplished. Speaking of, we got a website up this week!! It's very basic, but it'll do for now :) We're still working on it, tweaking it here and adding more things there. We also plan to get a gallery page on there soon. A work in progress, Friends.
Anywho - CHECK IT OUT!!!! Let us know what you think and PLEASE SPREAD THE WORD!!!

On September 7th one of our ponies, Millie, injured herself. As we were pulling out of the driveway, we noticed her leg looked bloody. We stopped the car to investigate and found that she had somehow scraped her front right leg so bad that her skin was just dangling there and her bone was fully visible. *Insert massive "gross!!!" shudders here*
We are pleased to report that she has handled this injury like a champ. She never acted hurt or became lame. She was kept in a stall to help keep her wound clean and she was a great girl while in there. She's now back out in the pasture with her buddy, Gypsy, and if you didn't notice the bandage on her leg you'd never know she's injured. Three cheers for Millie!!! :)

In the Spring of 2013 we had the opportunity to once again take our HoofBeats program into the Boys & Girls Club of Middlebury. At the end of the 6 week session, the group was invited to come celebrate their graduation from session one at RHYR. We spent the time showing them around the ranch, introducing them to our four-legged angels, and explaining to them everything we do here. Then, of course, we ended it with a sugary treat :)

Middlebury, IN
