Thank You! 2024 Recap

Thank you all for coming to Ride for the Ranch 2024!  We had a beautiful day and over 60 riders helped us raise $30,000 for the ministry of Paradise Ranch- specifically to build a new well.

We have a little more to go to fully fund the new well, which is crucial to the overall health of our herd.  If you would like to invest or ask others to join you in supporting Paradise Ranch, you can still donate online to the event.

Thank you for your support, and save the date for Ride for the Ranch, April 26, 2025!

A special thank you to our Corporate Sponsors, who help underwrite the cost of the event to ensure that every dollar raises goes straight to serving thousands of students, adults, and families at the Ranch.

Event Information

During Ride for the Ranch you will experience the full line-up of Paradise Ranch’s activities. Bring your own horse or use one of ours for this fun event.

The day will include:

  • Ride one of our horses or bring your own horse and trailer
  • Open Horse Trails
  • Cattle Sorting
  • Cowboy Challenge Course
  • Fantastic Dinner Provided

To support the ministry of Paradise Ranch, we ask that each participant raise at least $100 for the event. Prizes will be awarded to top fundraisers.
