Hearts Landing Ranch and it’s people has such a big impact and place in my heart already! I’ve only been around for a couple weeks and it already feels like a 2nd home to me. I love what the Lord is doing here and will continue to do. Such an amazing place to be and to volunteer at. Can’t wait to see what’s in store.
Hearts Landing Ranch hosted an EAGALA training that allows certification to extend their reach to even more clients and youth that are helped by Equine-Assisted Therapy. The volunteers that have put in hours and passion to help individuals with trauma, depression, abuse, and human trafficking are amazing! They work tirelessly to make a difference to hurting youth and their families. EAGALA training is a 5-day workshop that is the global standard for psychotherapy and personal developement incorporating horses.
This group truly has a big heart! Through their kindness they planted and tended to flower boxes at Hearts Landing Ranch. The fruits of their labor were buckets of beautiful flowers that they donated to "The Petal Connection." By their support our non-profit TPC was able to create many small floral bouquets to give to hospice and seniors in need of a smile. Thank you for your support and giving heart!
Hearts Landing Ranch is a safe environment where kids can experience healing through equine therapy. Therapists and volunteers are caring and loving and the contribution to the community is huge. Donna is incredibly passionate about this work and it shows...from the devotion to the kids as well as to the rescue horses they work with. Amazing non profit.
This organization utilizes its resources very well: its land, volunteers and donations that I know my donations go far and even farther because my company matches 1:1 my donations. I like their mission for individuals as well as the greater community. I've attended some of their family movie nights about ~250 adults and kids. It's cool hearing some of their stories, feels like a big family having fun outside with each other. Keep on doing the good work!
Hearts Landing Ranch is an absolutely wonderful , god led, and beautiful ministry that saves the lives of at risk youth. In addition to providing a safe, tolerant, and positive environment , Hearts Lansing Ranch empowers the kids that they should remain determined to reach the ultimate goals within their life and take advantage of the second chance life has given them. I have witnessed , first hand how the lives of youth are impacted and transformed in such a positive manner that it has provided my heart with so much promise and joy for the future.
Hearts Landing Ranch is an amazing non-profit to volunteer with. They are so caring with the Youth they work with. They go above and beyond in providing a program that helps enrich the lives of the Youth that come to the ranch for equine therapy by assisting the Youth in developing relationships with the horses and learning skills that the Youth can take into the future in their own relationships. The staff work hard to build into the lives of the people they work with and truely care about each and every person they come in contact with!
Hearts Landing currently works with the high-risk teens from our behavioral and mental health programs. Their staff are engaging and supportive, meeting the needs of our youth in a myriad of ways. The Hearts Landing team is absolutely the best!
The transformation I have seen with at-risk boys is unbelievable. On a second session, One young man who was terribly afraid of the horses, found a best friend and a sense of belonging when a horse walked up behind him and gently put his head on this young man's back. He said "This is the first time I felt I could ever belong to anything other than a gang." wow, just wow!
We have partnered with Hearts Landing Ranch for years now, sending volunteers to help with their projects and events. It is always a very rewarding experience for our volunteers. We love the important work they do with foster youth and their families. We'll always support this incredible nonprofit!
Donna and her team are EXCEPTIONAL... not enough words to describe how amazing they are at reaching the hearts of the kids they love on as well as the horses they save! Hearts Landing Ranch and Donna and her team empower humans and horses, raise them up, and SAVE LIVES... ***They make this world a better place.*** My son Gideon and I were blessed to visit from Colorado for almost a week and watch transformations happen first hand, and it was an incredible experience we will always be grateful for!
My boys and i were at a 2 yr program for women and children we all had suffered so much trauma . we went with 8 ladies and their kids and saw all the horses and chickens .. I rememeber kidd the white horse the most. I also rememeber the chicken coop because my son and i reached in their together scared but when we pulled out an egg it was like a breakthrough for us. Hearts landing a year prior donated a christmas tree to my family when we dis not have one . Donna is such a sweetheart and so is everyone there thank you for the opportunity to come and have this wonderful experience with my kids i will never ever forget it
Hearts Landing is a well run organization that does exactly what it promises to do. It helps the horses by removing them from abusive situations and it helps the people by allowing them to care for the horses. Both benefit.
Hearts Landing Ranch is an amazing family-focused ranch devoted to the enrichment of underserved kids and teens.
I was first introduced to Donna & Hearts Landing Ranch last year and I have to say I am extremely grateful that! The Mitry Group started to work with the ranch in sponsoring the movie nights, Pumpkin patch & Christmas tree farm in 2018 and after every event, I fall more in love with that place. Hearts Landing Ranch is a blessing to so many and I pray it continues to be.
Hearts Landing is a beautiful property with great animals. The owner, Donna, is super amazing and always available to help. Love this place!
There is such incredible warmth and love at Hearts Landing Ranch. My teenage daughter and I have been volunteering regularly and I am amazed at how much joy our time with Donna and her horses has given us. The gift of purpose has been extremely important for my daughter’s growth and development. Thank you!!!
Hearts Landing Ranch is an incredibly special organization that gives back to their community daily. Donna devotes so much time to the people and horses in need of her love and care; and has family fun community events as well. Hearts Landing Ranch is one of a kind
It is a place to get equine therapy and feel that you belong
to something bigger than yourself. I have been a volunteer for 11 months and the words of affirmation and the courage to move forward has made my life happier and has brought joy into my life. Donna has been an inspiration to me and has taught me more about the horses and myself. I would recommend this non profit ranch to everyone I meet.
This ranch and the mission behind it are a blessing to the children and the community. I can’t think of a better non-profit to support. It is a beautiful ranch, with rescued horses, helping at-risk kids in our region to heal and gain confidence. There isn’t a better cause on this earth.
Love the environment and the horses and especially Donna.
She works with my granddaughter and allows her to figure out how to proceed with situations and talk about that process. Last week TRUST was the word most used to describe the relationship of the horses with my granddaughter. Trust is a very big issue for my granddaughter so recognizing how it worked with the horses was just where she needed to be.
AND, I got to muck the arena and be helpful also.
I met Donna just over a year ago, and have followed her love for animals, and in particular horses that have been abused or going to the grave. She has rescued some near death horses and has brought life into their bodies and souls.. These horses are loved and cared for. I realize we all do not have deep pockets to assist with these animals, but a few $$ now and then are a big help, a really big help.. Come see what she and her volunteers have accomplished, and you will love all that has been done. Regards Tony Rishe
Donna and her crew pour their heart and soul into HeartsLanding in order to help all who come to them for support and guidance. I love they are vision and will continue to support him in every way I can.
My horse saved my life. At 13 years old I felt alone, hopeless, not good enough and I was going to make a life altering decision. I am now in my 50s and had no plans or idea Hearts Landing Ranch would be part of my legacy. Watching the magic of hope, growth and belonging happen between Traumatized humans and horses also from broken backgrounds is a powerful, whole body transformation for the participants, horses as well as the volunteers.
Hearts Landing ranch is doing AMAZING work. From the horses to the people to the vegetable garden, it is all so very important and good. The healing that takes place here is significant and the personal experience of being there is nothing short of magical. 10 stars!
Hearts Landing Ranch in Granite Bay ~ slice of heaven for hurting youth. Beautiful ministry. Stop by to pet horses, hear roosters, pick tomatoes or simply reflect on how horses and community come together to teach how to trust again. Donna and Mike and team take deliberate steps to build a safe loving community. Healing happens at this ranch- for children,adults, families and horses. Beautiful place filled with everyday life to stop the cycle of past and present hurting youth - a non profit deserving of local community support both financially and through active volunteers.
Heartslanding is INCREDIBLE!! Donna's vision is inspiring, and its been a blessing being a part of the ranch. Truly a place where broken people and horses can find hope, healing, and community.
My experience with Heartslanding Ranch!
Meet Rowdy Boy!
He has made such a transformation in just one year. He used to be very mouthy, had a attitude of don’t come near me and would not allow people around him. He was a nursing Foul that was taken from him Mom and put to slaughter. Now he is calm and content with me hanging on him while he eats. He was saved from Slaughter a couple times. That experience was very traumatic for him. He is just one of the many stories at Heartslanding Ranch.
As some of you know, I have had some major health hurdles and had to overcome a lot of adversity in my life. Due to that struggle, I had tattooed on my arm that I have been “Saved by Grace”. I whole heartedly believe that. There was a point when I was physically and emotionally dying. I was bedridden for two year until I had finally gotten a diagnosis. Many surgeries later, many lessons later...I am starting to see God had other plans.
I found it very fitting for Rowdy to share this same quote. He was Saved by Grace too! God wastes nothing! He is going to use both of us and this ranch to help people suffering. I am so humbled to be a part of this plan and for such a great group of people who share this vision. I can’t wait to see what God does next.
If you are interested in contributing to Rowdy and/or Heartslanding Ranch please reach out to me or visit @heartslandingranch.
There isn’t a more noble cause in my books.
Helping trauma victims through Natural Horsemanship and Rescue. ReBuilding both from the ground up!
Myself and my boys have had the honor and privilege to be apart of not just participating in the family nights but to volunteer. It has been an amazing experience for us. We have gained so much that we never even imagined would happen just by being apart. We have gained so much valuable time spent as a family building connection through serving and being apart. We have gained laughter that we needed because we were faced with hard situations in our life that because of the time we spend on the ranch helping and spending time with the horses has brought healing to our hearts. We have gained friends we wouldn't have gained without being apart. This has given my boys an opportunity to learn and be around the horses and the ranch life which is something they want to do as part of their life dream so this give them some hands on experiences. We have grown so much as a family over coming hard things but individually as well. It has been tears of joy to see my boys grow in their healing because they can relate to the story of the horses and have compassion for them and love every moment they get to spend with them. We are truly grateful for Hearts Landing Ranch and how they are serving thw community and also giving us the privilege to serve. This place has truly enriched and blesses our lives.
Doing well serving hurting families and their loved ones with equine assisted learning and building community. Could improve raising more mentor leaders and fundraising. Horses are expensive and we would like a herd manager on staff
