Christ Centered Riding® is the part of Mounted Ministries® wherein we seek to minister the word of God to the world around us through equestrian missions. Christians are commanded to “go out into all the world and make disiples.” Cathy Childers along with Mounted Ministries’ volunteers accomplish this through ministerial services, namely, organizing and operating religious outreach programs using horses.
Thank you for your interest in our equestrian ministries. We are extremely blessed to have such a supportive community. If you or someone you know is interested in horses, please have them contact us!
We travel, with horses, to the following locations:
* Foster & Group Homes
* Trail Rides
* Special Events at YOUR barn
Hallelujah Horse Camp is an opportunity for kids to be kids, and for adults to be kids too while we parallel God's love for us through horsemanship! We invite all to join the fun and games:
*Learn the art of "Horse Whispering"
*Make "horsey" arts-n-crafts
*Christ Centered Riding® lessons & Devotion
*Play FUN gymkhana games
*FUN show at the end of the week with
PRIZES, RIBBONS, and a TROPHY!
Volunteer “Summer Ranch Hands”
Mounted Ministries could not exist without the generous contribution of time and energy from our volunteers, or “ranch hands.” As a ministry, we seek strong Bible-believing Christian leaders who can minister effectively to others. Many activities require good horsemanship skills, but there are plenty of “non-horse” needs as well. If you would like to join the hands-on part of our ministry, please request a volunteer application.
Mounted Ministries has found their FOREVER HOME!
El Shammah Ranch, LLC is situated on approximately 26 acres of pastures, woods, creeks, and gorgeous views.
We are happy to offer a permanent home to Mounted Ministries at 546 Concord Church Road in Pickens, SC.

"Kathy is absolutely phenomenal with very young children, very gentle but firm. My 5 year old granddaughter riders during holidays and summers when she visits and has made incredible progress. Ifthe child is insecure, unbalanced, doesn't have the reins, etc., the horse won't move. My granddaughter has to figure out where she needs to correct herself. This is my second round as "horse mom" and this has been a truly positive experience. The way Kathy weaves in Biblical life lessons is subtle, consistent and memorable."
