Experience Hearts In Hand Horsemanship, LLC
Our mission is to help people recognize themselves in horses, find true healing and connection through Jesus Christ, and share the joy of rescued horses living almost wild here in the great northeast.
We fund Hearts in Hand Horsemanship, LLC with mounted archery clinics, horse training for desensitization and ground manners, donations and scholarships. Our scholarship programs enable us to provide free-of-charge group and one-on-one activities for at-risk-youth, first responders, military and police. Our ministry is also for those young and old who love horses, want to feel warm horse breath on their cheeks and and to learn how to communicate in horse language.
Why did we begin this equine services ministry? To share our blessing and great joy. We are also honored to be an official "Similar Ministry" of Crystal Peaks Youth Ranch in Bend Oregon, the catalyst for our ministry.
The Bible says that our Lord Jesus Christ returns on His white horse, after which we will be with Him forever. We interact and ride our horses with the prayer that we are joining His heavenly army in spirit and in our hearts.
Now I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse. And He who sat on him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness He judges and makes war. His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written:
KING OF KINGS AND
LORD OF LORDS

“I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me. ”
Isaiah 49: 15-16
Director of Operations and Safety
Like all rescued horses in kill pens, Jules was homeless a couple of times. She is trauma-informed and comfortable working with both violent kill pen horses and soldiers in crises. Whether you are a bullied teen or a law enforcement professional, the peace found so easily with horses is the answer to prayers.
Jules was a lonely 12 year old who found solace with her white horse, running wild and free. No bit, no shoes, no saddle. No stall for the longest time. Humans need the same feeling of freedom. Jules believes the Lord Jesus Christ is the answer to our prayers. He returns to us soon on His white horse.
Director of Communications
Reesa is Jules' daughter, and a new mother to a beautiful baby boy. She has been passionate about helping young people since she was saved by the Lord in her early twenties. Reesa loves combining wilderness activities, free writing, and horse love to help young folks draw closer to the redeeming love of Jesus Christ. Having been through many trials in life, Reesa believes that if one person reaches out to someone who is hurting, Christ's love can work in that persons heart, and change their world forever.
Main Horse for the Littles
Zoey is a paint quarter horse who has been with us the longest. She was rescued by a young girl at two years old. Starved at auction, she was four hundred pounds underweight. Zoey was purchased by Jules in 2013. She is our most well trained horse, and is very cuddly, but can become quite sassy when she feels like it! Zoey is our the best horse for working with children, and people who have never been around horses.
Mama is a standardbred who was rescued from horrific conditions, and a life as a former racehorse throw-away. It has taken many years, and lots of love and training to get her to where she is today, but man was she worth it. Mama took some time off but she's now being ridden again and really enjoys our time together. Mama is our best horse for quiet and gentler spirits.
Pepper is a rescued Andalusian mustang/quarter horse (mutt) who joined our herd a couple of years ago. He is a sweet boy who wants to be good! Thankfully, Jules was able to train him to back up upon first meeting him, and he has been steadily learning ever since. Pepper has been started under saddle and is learning to become a great trail horse. Pepper is our best horse for those with more experience, or who have been working with us for a while.
Spirit is a standardbred, and our most recent addition to the herd. We rescued Spirit fresh off of the race track! We have finally bulked him up and gotten him used to wild horse living. We are blessed to have this special boy with us. We have officially started him, which means that he is being trained to ride. Spirit is especially loving and friendly to those who may be sad or lonely at heart.
