Thank you for joining us at the 8th Annual Christmas Village Market

On Thursday, December 7th over 30 local businesses and service groups opened their doors to welcome guests with refreshments, music, and door prizes.

The Christmas trolley was able to provide transportation down S. Main Street this year,
and Heaven’s Gait Ranch was one of the stops!

Thank you to our trolley driver, Roy, for bringing the Christmas spirit further down Main Street!

Thank You to all who attended The Heaven’s Gait Hayburner! 


Thanks to your generosity and support, we had a very successful turnout from The Hayburner at Newport Shores this fall! We sincerely appreciate all those who came out to support our cause, especially those who sponsored riders in our therapeutic riding program, veterans in our Equine Services for Heroes program, as well as our therapy horses who make these lessons possible!

Three out of six program horses received full sponsorship for 2018, including Ember, Simpson, and Mac! We are still offering sponsorship opportunities for Ellie Mae, Jack, and Levi. Please contact Margaret Mary at 920-400-0628 if you’re interested in learning more.

Family Heirlooms Treasured at Heaven’s Gait Ranch

Cheri & Gene EberhardyThank you, Vicki Metz for donating your beautiful Western saddle to Heaven’s Gait Ranch, and thank you Ben & Roberta Eberhardy for building such an adorable stand!

All our visitors enjoy petting “Drummer Boy” as he keeps us company in the office. For new riders, he’s the perfect role model to help us teach safety rules and horsemanship skills before ever entering the barn.

Special thanks to the Eberhardy family — especially Gene & Cheri — for supporting our programs and believing in our mission.
