Heaven's Helpers



Heaven’s Helpers is an Experiential Ministry.


Using the horse as a tool for ministry, our goal is to give additional support in navigating life’s

trials. This is done through the horses, spiritual assistance, caring individuals, as well as a place for retreat and reflection. The atmosphere at Royal Ridges Retreat provides a safe place in God’s creation away from the distractions of life.


Some of life’s trials may include: fearful riders, depression, divorce/separation, children in split

families, medical stress, abuse, emotional trauma…


The intent is to serve participants for a minimum of three months and up to six months, but

you may participate longer if needed. Sessions are one hour in length and participants may sign

up for up to two sessions per week, depending on need. Sessions may be mounted or unmounted, as directed by Royal Ridges staff. Prior horse experience is not necessary.


Heaven’s Helpers is available to ages 8-99.


The first month is offered free of charge. Each month thereafter is $100 ($25 per session).

As an alternative, if needed, the participant may volunteer three hours per session, or twelve hours per month. If the three months minimum is not met, the participant will be asked to pay for their past involved time.
