Exodus Farms Ministry provides a completely free-of-charge, donor-supported horsemanship program that serves at-risk and emotionally broken children in our community. Between 80-100 children visit the farm each week to ride and learn about horses and to experience a safe environment, filled with the unconditional love and acceptance shown by our fantastic volunteers! Each child works one-on-one with a horse and a volunteer, to make sure that every child gets undivided personal attention and an opportunity for mentoring and connection. Through their work with our herd of 20 adopted horses (many of whom were also "broken" or "discarded" when they came to the farm), the children learn confidence, better emotional coping strategies, self-discipline, ways to handle challenging situations, and appropriate and positive ways of interacting with others.

The horses who work in our program are all also donor-supported, and we are actively seeking new "horse sponsors" for ten of our horses this year, at $2,500 for the whole year (or $700 a year for a miniature horse), which covers hay, grain & nutritional supplements, vaccinations, dental, veterinary, and hoof care for these hard-working "equine therapists"!

Children who have gone through Exodus's program have become the first in their family to finish high school, to go to college, to hold a stable job - and, most importantly, they have learned that they are valuable, capable, unique, and precious human beings who have many gifts to share with the world! Because of the positive results that the program has given, Exodus continues to grow and consistently gets referrals and requests for assistance from schools, social services, churches, families needing help and many others in the community. We partner with many local community agencies to make sure we are serving the children who are most desperately in need of our program. Through the Exodus horsemanship program, the future of children is affected in a positive way, which benefits the local community as well the individual child.
