Jun 17    Born Wild - Created to be Free with Todd Pierce

Bring the entire family for a remarkable event - a living parable of an unbroken horse by Todd Pierce. 

"Born Wild… Created To Be Free is a horse breaking demonstration given by a champion bareback rider, horse trainer and pastor, Todd Pierce. However, it is not a training seminar. It is a message proclaiming the good news of Jesus Christ. Todd works in a round-pen, with a young horse that has not yet been ridden. With a gentle hand and a calm manner, he guides the horse around the pen, building a relationship of trust, until the horse submits to bridle, bit and saddle, and ultimately allows Todd to ride. All the while, Todd shares with the audience how Christ wants a relationship with us; He wants us to yield to His gentle hand, just as the horse yields to Todd."

Learn more about Todd and Riding High Ministries.

The Born Wild - Created to Be Free event is hosted by Forged in Faith Oak Ministries and the Valley County Community Foundation Fund.
