Spirit Horse Ranch

Recommended Posts

Fog covers over the ground, creating a soft humid air flow it seems. Pounding reaches your ears, as you come up to a white rail fence; you look around to find the source of the sound. Squinting through the fog, you see what seemed to be a horse, or the form of one. As the figure comes closer you realize yes, that is a horse. Wait, I'm on a race track of course there are going to be horses. You also notice the horse struggling to keep up galloping at the speed that's expected. The trainers shaking his head, muttering to the owner 'just lose the horse. He isn't' worth it sir.' Yet your eye catches some other people standing near the rail, with jackets that read Spirit Horse Ranch printed upon them. Watching the young horse struggle with the work out. You come to find out, this Spirit Horse Ranch, rescues racers that would otherwise be sent to the slaughter house. The struggling little bay thoroughbred is being sent here. To be retrained, and sent to a loving home. You smile thinking people do help animals when they need it most. You approach these Spirit Horse Ranch people, to ask for a job there. To help these horses, find new homes. They smile and nod and tell you 'we'll try you out.' You also find out they don't only help thoroughbred, appendix quarter horse racers, but troubled teens also. You never thought a ranch such as would do this program. Yet you come to find out, once these teens leave there a different person. Like somehow the horses had changed them at some point. Changed how they acted, and treated life.

Nestled in the rich Kentucky heartlands is where Spirit Horse Ranch is located. With rolling green hills of greens, white clap board fences, beautifully built green and white barns. Spirit Ranch was started by Karen Monroe many years before. With her dream to be able to safe, help, and rehome some of the most graceful horses on earth. Yet but somehow help the teens that had managed to trouble there lives. Starting small, she bought the first farm, a small 25 acres. And only taking a few horses and teens a year. Letting them change their self day by day. Building her way up in the racing world, she got more horses. Expanded, and finally found the place she had been looking for. Naming it Spirit Horse Ranch, after the spirit these great horses have. After the spirit that rekindled in the troubled teens that land there self at Spirit horse ranch. That leave with a new kind of spirit one, than many wish there kids would have. Karen handed the Ranch down to her son and daughter Dustin and Sophie. Sophie and Dustin still own the ranch in their mother's wishes. Yet the last few years, Spirit ranch fell into despair. Taking the ranch out of working for 2 long years. By working many days and hours alone, the Monroe's built the place again from ground up. Bringing the ranch back better than it ever was. Having more room, for more horses, and jobs for teens willing to change their self. Whose dream was to help horses, and change their self just the same. Dustin and Sophie invite you to help keep their mothers dream alive. By winning the hearts of these troubled horses, letting them begin their new lives. Helping you begin your new life after leaving the ranch. Welcome to Spirit Horse Ranch.

Break into this tough shell and she will tell you her problems, tell you whats wrong and put her trust into you.

History: Arianna was basically left to fend for herself, in a house with only her and her little sister. Arianna took the motherly role in taking care of her and is protective over her. She and her sister havn't seen their mom in forever, they would always see her siginture on the rent check or a small check for food and school. Arianna always loved horses, as did her sister. They had pictures of horses up all over their house

Why did you get sent to the ranch: Arianna took up stealing, would steal everything she owned especially brand name clothing and products to make it seem that they wern't in the rut that they were in. She would steal everything as she didnt have much time for many hours at her job nor the experties to deal with people and adults when she had such a hate for them.
