Our mission is to glorify God as we build relationships with children and their families in order to help them to develop and mature through the use of horses. We purpose to do this by teaching them to care for, feed, exercise, ride and respect both horses and people. We turn no child away and never charge the children or their families. The important work ethic is taught as each child participates in the maintenance of the horses they love. We excel in loving relationships with each child as well as having fun. Blazing Hope is a safe, positive and happy place where children are given hope. Ours is a day program with children coming for 2 to 3 hour time periods. We are a community service provider for Ada and Canyon County Juvenile Probation Departments providing guidance, and help for troubled teens. We have special events at holidays, as well as work days, parties, and trail rides.

    Blazing Hope Youth Family Ranch enjoyed 121 visits last week with 26 hours of our wonderful volunteers serving the kids and the horses. We rode 20 of our horses.  Our special Wednesday group of kids is really improving their riding skills as we work with about a dozen of the horses to help them blossom. […]
    "So I want to ask you, “Who runs your life? Who’s your Lord?” Most of us would say, “Jesus is my Lord.” But when it comes down to what you wear, who’s your Lord? Are you governed by fashion? Are you governed by the culture? Are you governed by your friends’ opinions or are you […]
  • Building Relationships
    Sometimes our mission field is right in our own backyard.  Children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren all need our love.  Today's newer generations often do not have the stability and love we once had growing up in homes with two parents and a stay-at-home mom. Imagine spending your summer caring for your 6 grand-kids as their single mothers work […]

    I want to publicly thank Lance Olenik for the development of our new web page. He has done an excellent job and I look forward to many posts from our ranchers (the teens and children who participate in our ministry here (ministry is a better word than program), their families and those of you who support what we do who may live along ways away. If you wish to thank Lance who donated his time, talents and energy you can send him an email at: LOlenik@maf.org (Lance is the webmaster for MAF-Missionary Aviation Fellowship). Thanks Lance for doing a super job!!! Mike Howard, Director of Blazing Hope.
