Helping, Encouraging, And Restoring Through Support!
Our team of horses at STR comes to us from a variety of backgrounds. Many of our horses would be considered the “bench warmers” in the competitive horse world due to their “lack of qualifications.” At Strong Tower Ranch, conformation, color, and breed are irrelevant because God looks at the heart, and the hearts of our horses are priceless. Our horses have found their purpose as part of the STR Team. They share the love of Jesus with children and volunteers in a unique way. Many of our horses have gone through the pains of abandonment, abuse, and neglect. They bring comfort and joy to people who have faced similar challenges and together they find love, refuge and HOPE. How does this happen? Horses have been shown to have high emotional intelligence and can feel what we feel! Horses can sense emotional pain and are able to show empathy and compassion. God created the horse with a HUGE HEART!
This is an opportunity to deepen your investment in the mission of STR! You can have an impact by sponsoring TEAM STRONG HEARTS (Helping, Encouraging, And Restoring Through Support!) Your support will help keep the herd fit and healthy so that they can continue to deliver hope and unconditional love to the hundreds of children that visit the ranch each year! Along with other team sponsors, you will be supporting the backbone of our horsemanship programs: Remnants, GATES, SPURS, Trail Rides, Summer Camps, and Equine Team Building.

Barn Supply Sponsor
In our barn we use various products (pine shavings, lime, pellets, etc.) to keep our horse stalls comfy and cozy. To keep the horses’ tack in good condition, we purchase various cleaning supplies. We also have to keep on hand a variety of horse first-aid supplies for any minor injuries.
A healthy horse is a happy horse. Each horse receives a yearly veterinary visit that includes a general check-up, immunizations, and dental work. Our barn manager also ensures that they receive the proper deworming medications throughout the year.
- Annual Well-Care for one horse : $220
Summer Fun Sponsor
The summers at STR are full of exciting and busy days for the horses. We use a variety of supplies to help the horses stay safe and comfortable. To keep the pesky bugs away, we provide each horse with a fly mask and lots and lots of fly spray. We also sunscreen their muzzles and faces to ensure they don’t burn.
Be a Cheerleader
Our horses love their sweet treats. Donations of carrots, apples, and peppermints are always welcome and thoroughly enjoyed. This is a great gift idea for the STR lover in your family and a wonderful way to be part of the team. It is a small investment but greatly appreciated.
Farrier Care Sponsor
The horse’s hoof is one of the most amazing creations designed by God. A horse, weighing 1,200 pounds and galloping at 40 mph, places approximately 4,800 pounds of pressure on each hoof. The hoof is also known as the second heart of the horse. The impact of the hoof as it hits the ground forces the blood in the horse’s leg to pump back up the veins to the heart. To maintain a healthy hoof, a horse needs to receive general farrier care 6-8 times a year.
Be a SUPER FAN
Being a SUPER Fan means sponsoring one horse’s feed, farrier care, and well-care for a year. It is not only a great gift idea, but also a perfect outreach for church and school groups, business organizations, and 4H clubs. Also, it is a beautiful way to honor or pay tribute to a loved one. Become a Super Fan and be a part of this rewarding team bringing hope to the hopeless!
