Lost Creek Ranch is a 501(c)3 Non Profit horse rescue. Lynette Weldon along with her board, interns and volunteers rescue, retrain and give our horses a forever home and job working in one of our programs like Camp Confidence, teaching lessons or taking riders on the trails.
Our Mission "Let no heart or soul , human or equine, fall through the cracks." is really more than just words. It is how Lynette Weldon lives her life and it is why the ranch exists. Her strong belief that has every life is valuable and that everyone deserves a second chance has guided her in setting up programs. Every rescue horse at the ranch has a job. Even the senior semi retired horses like Blizz, Bandit and Tardy are used for timid little ones to learn to groom and lead. The ranch is often the last stop for a horse that has had a run of bad luck and been labeled "dangerous" or "crazy." The most dramatic changes are seen in these horses. After establishing leadership and building trust It doesn't take Lynette long to have them safe and sane and ready for their new job.
Not only is Lost Creek Ranch a place for equine lost souls it is also a respite for people who needs to build their confidence, make new friends and find a place to belong. The atmosphere Lynette has created is unlike any other riding establishment. Everyone is welcome at Lost Creek Ranch and everyone will find their perfect equine partner.
Beginning riders learn to safely handle a horse on the ground, grooming, how to saddle, form, posture, balance and communication. As riders advance they work on higher level riding skills including transitions, half halts, half pass, turn on the haunches/ forehand and the mechanics behind these maneuvers. More advanced riders can choose to take lessons in their chosen discipline or concentrate on showing Western or English Pleasure, Huntseat, Reining, Trail, Horsemanship & Halter classes. Beginning jumpers are encouraged and we have some wonderful safe jumpers for you to learn on.
