Howdy, from Lost Creek Ranch!!! If you have a love for horses and nature this is the place to be. We offer lessons, training, and leasing. Here at Lost Creek Ranch you will experience lots of TLC for the horses and family. Lost Creek Ranch offers a large outdoor arena, a bright indoor arena with lots of natural light, round pen, large paddocks, barn with new stalls and heated lounge. Shelter is provided in all of our turn out areas. Our annual CAMP CONFIDENCE overnight kids horse camps starts the second week in June, with ongoing sessions through out the summer. It’s always a favorite among the kids and parents! The children stay in our bunkhouse and have their own horse for the week they’re here. At the end of every camp session we put on a horse show for family and friends to show what we have accomplished together.

We are an official 501(c) non-profit organization as of November 2009. Visit our Sponsor a Horse or Child page for more information on this wonderful opportunity to help horses and children who could benefit from your gift of kindness. Many of our kids' lesson and camp horses were either rescued, given to us in hopes of providing them a more fulfilling life, or else given to us simply because they were no longer wanted. Some are seniors who require special diets and/or supplements and more frequent dental care. Others have certain medical, joint and/or hoof issues that also require specialized diets, supplements and frequent appointments with the farrier. Your donations and sponsorships help us meet all their individual needs. Thank you very much to everyone who has donated in the past!

Open Everyday: We welcome visitors! If you would like to watch lessons or get a tour of the ranch call ahead and we will have someone ready to show you around and introduce you to the herd.

Welcome Zues

Zues joined our herd on a very cold day in January. He is a super sweet thoroughbred gelding who has already become a favorite among the kids and adults alike. We are working to get to the bottom of his ongoing health issues while getting him in better condition and fattening him up a little! He enjoys his days of nonstop hay and afternoons with grooming and attention from the kids. Zues seems to really enjoy dressage and jumping- but not the cow flag!

Zues' care is sponsored by a wonderful family. Thank You for allowing him to come home to Lost Creek Ranch- his forever home.

Your donations make a difference in the lives of horses and youth in our community and beyond. We thank you for considering making a tax deductible donation.

Lost Creek Ranch Camp Confidence earned its 501(c)3 non profit status in 2009 and we are proud to be a widely respected horse rescue that takes in horses of all ages and physical conditions,  gets them the proper vet care, nutrition and the farrier work they need then once they are healthy trains them for a job they will love at the ranch- their new home. Our herd is kept fit and healthy by being ridden and worked with in our many programs from lessons to camps- even our oldest seniors love to work with the littlest riders or timid beginners. The younger horses get a new start in life with training and our UWRF interns learn new skills and develop the patience required to  be effective with horses.

It all comes full circle here at Lost Creek Ranch!
