Little Red is the offspring of one of our select brood mares named Buttercup and a 32" stallion no longer on the ranch. He has the same friendly disposition of his mamma. Little Red shares an amazing story of survival when as a yearling, he nearly died from a freak accident injuring the muscles and nerves in his neck. Red was not ready to quit. With many prayers, his determination and strong will to live, surprised everyone. After a full year of recovery, Little Red continued training and is now a vital part of our horse program. In spite of his youthful injury, he learns very quickly, is cart trained and willing to do anything you ask of him. Little Red Beat the odds and sets a fine example for never underestimating the power of prayers for your pets! Thank you for considering Little Red.

Whispering Ponies Ranch is a subsidiary of SkyWatch TV, a non-profit 501 C 3 organization, that employs mobile services with miniature equine assisted activities to help bring positive mental, physical, emotional, and restorative benefits primarily to children of abuse.
Every year, more than 3.2 million children in America are sex-trafficked, abused, abandoned, or neglected. One in seven Americans are sexually abused as children. Tragically, 1,500 to 2,000 children die each year at the hands of their caretakers. And the remainder are sadly disregarded or experience a combination of these abuses.
But there is hope for many of these victims through the partnership that Whispering Ponies Ranch (WPR) holds with YOU and the Royal Family Kids Camps (RFKC) and Teen Reach organizations. Since 1985, RFKC has been offering week-long specialized restoration camps and follow-up mentoring specifically designed to restore children of abuse who have become wards of the state. In the past, some kids could not benefit from these special services due to the cost-preventative nature of per-child campgrounds’ expenses. But AT WPR, ALL AMENITIES—from food services and lodging to expert recreational and counseling staff—ARE PROVIDED AT NO COST, which means no child ever has to be turned away. We can only do this because of our Pony Sponsors and VIP Founders Group members (the best people on earth!) who partner directly with WPR’s healing ministry by contributing to the operating and construction costs of the retreat facility that includes the care of these life-changing therapy horses—their foods, veterinary needs, farrier, and more.
This includes therapy use during specialized youth camps designed to help hurting youth rebuild trust and to feel the unconditional love they deserve. Our handlers use onsite therapy animal activities as well as camping elements such as climbing walls, fishing, bicycling, prayer trails and challenge courses to nurture abused children through modeling and teaching appropriate social behaviors so that they can begin regaining confidence in themselves and the world around them. This process is often slow and follow-up mentoring is often required over many years.
