Youth Learn and Grow with Stonewater Mustangs

Try. Kindness. Teamwork. Respect. These simple words, written by 7th and 8th grade girls, represent the deepest needs of their hearts and the human desires we all share. The eight Stonewater Ranch “Wild Hearts” program members who penned these thoughts are committed to living them out.

As we kick off the second year of our Wild Hearts ministry, girls will have opportunity to practice each of these attributes through horsemanship. They will learn to always look for the try in a horse; to treat each horse with kindness; to see how teamwork is essential to a successful session; and to gain respect for—and from—horses.

Stonewater Mustangs is using these same ideas to bring BLM mustangs onsite and in contact with students. This month, new footing and better drainage have been added to the barnyard and arena flooring. We will soon be receiving our paneling for mustang paddocks, water lines will be placed, and our mustang round pen will go up!
