Our mission is to provide a temporary, or if necessary permanent, sanctuary as we work to find forever and suitable homes for horses, ponies, and donkeys, regardless of age, breed, and health condition.
At Holy Spirit Farm, we are driven by a single goal; to enhance the lives of both people and horses.
Before being officially founded as a 501 c-3 non-profit in 2017 by Deana and Todd Reedy, "the barn" acted as a small place of refuge for "unwanted" or sick horses, with some lessons being offered. But, before we knew it, we began to grow, and grow, and grow.
Our reputation in the area quickly outgrew our facility size, as vets and individuals began reaching out to us, asking for help with horses and ponies. We saw an increase in the number of off-track thoroughbreds, began working with humane societies, and became a sanctuary for elderly horses, and horses with genetic/chronic conditions. The lesson program began to grow, as did our clientele for them; we now not only began offering regular lesson services, but lessons and rides to those with special needs or past trauma. Schools, girl and boy scout units, and universities were reaching out to us regarding programs we offered for community service, field trips, and even fundraising.
It was time to do something. After all, it seemed that we were filling a niche that no one else was caring for both the needs of horses and the community.
Fast forward to 2015 - Deana saw the demand and the chance we had to positively impact the lives of so many people and animals. She decided to upgrade from the 2 stall structure we had 13 horses out of, and build not one, but two other stables. A riding ring was added and Holy Spirit Farm was ready to be opened to the public.
We now offer equine refuge, lessons, day camps, fun shows, birthday parties, pony rides (that can travel), and wagon rides, in addition to school and volunteer programs, educational field trips, and services for those who have previously experienced trauma or difficulties. We strive to find perfect homes for the horses that and ponies that are able to move on from our farm, and those that are available can be found under the adoption page. On-farm lease programs are available as well, in addition to possible board.
