Lost Creek Camp Confidence is a one of a kind place where "unwanted" horses are cared for, trained and given a job that that love whether it is teaching children and adults how to ride, being camp horses or taking riders on the trails. The founder, Lynette Weldon, is that rare person who connects and understands horses as well as people. Her uncanny ability to read a horse is matched only by her wisdom in knowing exactly what her riding students need to move forward.
When I first started volunteering at Lost Creek Ranch I never dreamed of how much it would change my life. I came to the ranch, hoping to ride a few horses, clean a few stalls, and so small chores. I never imagined these small volunteer task would spark a new life for me! The atmosphere is so encouraging and they absolutely stick to their mission statement. I loved every second I spent at Lost Creek Ranch and was sad to leave because of college. I recommend volunteering here wether you like horses or not because the program is so rewarding!!
I found out about Lost Creek Ranch through their website. Lynette has taught me everything I know about horses. From how to put a saddle on to jumping!
During one of my lessons I fell off. I was scard to ride again, but Lynette helped me little bt little and eventually I gained the confidence to ride again. After that event, I feel like it helped me build a better relationship with horses.
The best part of Lost Creek Ranch is their Camp Confidence. They have a smaller size camp which helps students learn more things and you learn faster. At the camp you don't just learn how to ride, but also while your there you get to learn how to care for a horse of your own. I know it takes a lot of work, and their camps teach other kids that too.
I never get board of doing the same thing! Every lesson Lynette has me do something new. That makes horseback riding a lot more interesting. Everyone can learn at their own pace. They don't push you to learn. That helped me when I fell off. Although you do have to be confident and willing to learn that is the only way you can ride.
Lost Creek Ranch made me horse crazy!
It is a piece from heaven!
