Howdy, from Lost Creek Ranch!!!
If you have a love for horses and nature this is the place to be. We are located in a secluded valley, surrounded by whispering pines and an abundance of wildlife. Bordered by the famous Lost Creek trout stream, eagles soar above the ranch making you feel like you’ve stepped into a little piece of heaven. We offer lessons, training, and leasing. Here at Lost Creek you will experience lots of TLC for the horses and family. We have hours of beautiful trails to ride on along with picnic and camp sites, making every night a good night for a camp fire. Lost Creek Ranch offers a large outdoor lighted arena, round pen, large paddocks and stalls. Shelter is provided in all of our turn out areas. Our annual CAMP CONFIDENCE residential kids camps starts the second week in June, with ongoing sessions through out the summer. It’s always a favorite among the kids and parents! The children stay in our bunkhouse and have their own horse for the week they’re here. At the end of every camp session we put on a horse show for family and friends to show what we have accomplished together.

We are an official 501(c) non-profit organization as of November 2009. Visit our Sponsor a Horse or Child page for more information on this wonderful opportunity to help horses and children who could benefit from your gift of kindness. Many of our kids' lesson and camp horses were either rescued, given to us in hopes of providing them a more fulfilling life, or else given to us simply because they were no longer wanted. Some are seniors who require special diets and/or supplements and more frequent dental care. Others have certain medical, joint and/or hoof issues that also require specialized diets, supplements and frequent appointments with the farrier. Your donations and sponsorships help us meet all their individual needs. Thank you very much to everyone who has donated in the past!
