Wings of Hope Ranch


Where rescued horses and children come together to find hope and healing


Welcome to the Ranch

Located on 50 acres in beautiful Western Hanover, Virginia, Wings of Hope Ranch is a Christian-based ministry pairing rescued horses with children and teens facing challenges, free of charge.

We seek to love, encourage and share HOPE with everybody who comes to the Ranch.

He will cover you with his feathers. He will shelter you with his wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.

Where Hope is Found

Since 2006 God has brought together faithful donors and dedicated volunteers to provide hope and healing to children and teens facing challenging situations and a new home for rescued horses.

To date, Wings of Hope has hosted over 13,000 hours of equine sessions for Ranchers (children and teens) and been a part of 82 horses being rescued and re-homed.

"My girls have come out of their shells more and become more independent."
