Launching of Eagle's Nest Ranch
Organized by: Suzy MacKenzie
Event Name: Eagle's Nest Ranch BBQ
Many of us experience difficulties and disappointments in our lives. For some of us these painful events and circumstances can cause us to lose hope. These painful memories and events can become an obstacle to living a rewarding life. Interaction with horses often helps people through their adversities. Eagle’s Nest Ranch exists to provide a place of hope, trust and growth for people and horses so they can soar above the adversities of life in order to fulfill the purpose for which they were created.
The Ranch is open to children, youth and families who seek to soar above adversity. We serve military families through our Healing Horses for the Armed Forces program.
Opening this ranch and helping others has been a dream of mine since 2008. God in His faithfulness is saying, "Yes Suzy. It's time to fly." In a recent meeting of service providers for veterans here in Colorado, a young man spoke up and said, “I am a Veteran. I was deployed and when I went to battle, I lost a part of my soul and I had a hard time getting it back.” Wow, how sad, but yet this is the experience of many of our family, friends, neighbors and others who have chosen to serve and protect our country. Did you know that 22 veterans commit suicide each day?!!!! My hope is that in forming Eagle's Nest Ranch that our service members, their families and anyone else who is need of hope and healing will find it at the ranch as they interact with the horses and our loving volunteers. May they also come to know the One who can offer genuine hope and restore souls. "My God in His steadfast love will meet me." Psalm 59:10a
Raising these funds* will provide opportunities for service members, children, families and individuals to come to the ranch and participate in interactive sessions with the horses free of charge. The funding will enable me to be here at the ranch full-time to offer sessions as well as cover the expenses of running the ranch and caring for the horses.
