Cathy’s Calling

Cathy Childers
Founder/Executive Director

Cathy studied Equine Business at Clemson University and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Animal and Veterinary Sciences.  She has over 30+ years of horse-handling experience which includes breeding, starting, training, and behavior issues using natural horsemanship techniques and Christ Centered Riding® approach.  She has decades of experience competing in a variety of disciplines including Dressage and Rated competitions in Hunt Seat and Jumpers.  Additionally, she is the creator of the trademarked “Christ Centered Riding®” programs offered at Mounted Ministries. Cathy often says, “Loving people through loving horses is why I am here, it is my calling in life.” And, fittingly enough, that is why Mounted Ministries’ motto is,

“Sharing our passion for Jesus through our passion for horses.”

Christ Centered Riding® includes mounted and unmounted lessons and/or training for mainstream or therapeutic riders as well as equine assisted activities. All of which Cathy can always be found sharing Christian and family values from her heart.

As a ‘horse-whisperer’, during the summer months, Cathy gives children 5-15 years old the opportunity to learn the art of “horse-whispering,” how to care for, and how to ride a horse at one of several “Hallelujah…Summer Horse Camps”.

As a dedicated horse woman, Cathy has a passion to rescue abused and mistreated horses. Rescued horses on the farm are always available for petting, hugs, and ‘treats.’

When not at the farm, Cathy and horse can be found traveling doing mission work. She and volunteers will take the Christ Centered Riding® program to local orphanages, foster/group homes, and churches. Associating biblical truths while learning about the horse allows them a unique way of sharing God’s love with everyone they meet.

God Bless and Happy Trails,

Mounted Ministries
