The Christian Walk-Trot-Canter

Join us once a month for an intimate evening of connecting with God and His Creations. Horses are a gift from God given to us to teach us more about Him. By learning more about them and how they interact we can learn more about ourselves and our relationship with God.

Each evening we will open with a time of prayer and a horse themed devotional to help you on your journey with both God and horses. We will then share with you a musical performance by our horses and riders that will move and inspire you.
