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.

Lost Creek Ranch Camp Confidence needs to expand it's programs to reach more children and adults.
I found Lost Creek Ranch about two and a half years ago when my boys were at camp. I wanted a break from my two sons with special needs and a very active high schooler. I was welcomed, accepted, challenged and learned alot. I stayed on and actually now get a caregiver for the boys so I can have rejuvenating time for me. I have learned from Lynette (owner) how to understand horses and how to ride better. I have gained friendships with many of the woman there. The at risk youth program, intern program and youth camps are an important part of why the ranch exists. Lynette is a strong believer in giving these special horses a new job and allowing youth to grow through asset based experiences and the companionship of a horse. This place has changed my life. I am eager to have our indoor arena completed this fall so that we can ride on site in the winter as well as the summer. This will allow continuity in our programs and keep the horses engaged and in shape in the winter as well.
