Living Springs Ranch
The ranch horses are, in fact, a part of Moyer Ministries Inc., and play important roles in the outreach programs Ronnie and Becky Moyer use to positively influence people of all ages. In addition to horsemanship and rodeo Bible camps, the couple's active music ministry involves them with many organizations, such as the Fellowship of Christian Cowboys.
Ranch facilities include a large multipurpose building with kitchen, baths and attached indoor round pen, a small bunkhouse (campers are welcome), practice bucking and roping machines, barn, outdoor arena and corrals. In addition to trail rides and riding instruction, Living Springs also offers team sports, such as volleyball and softball, and campfire entertainment.
Riding activities regularly scheduled throughout the year include: Wrangler's Weekend: basic horsemanship skills for third- through sixth-grade students or for those in sixth through 12th grades.
Colt-Starting Clinic: basic instructional skills taught from the horse's point of view for sixth- through 12th-grade students, with student-parent weekends also available.
Ranch Retreat: ranch riding, roping, and working stock for sixth- through 12th-grade students and their parents.
Rodeo Bible Camp: basic instruction in barrel racing, pole bending, goat tying, rough-stock events and breakaway, calf and team roping with emphasis on safe equipment and riding techniques; for students in sixth through 12th grades.
