God’s Horses

God’s Horses is a Christian based equine facility where we strive to create an environment in which one can not only learn how to master the art of riding, but learn about God and how to form a bond with these horses based on mutual trust and respect.

We are a family owned business . My husband and I have been in prayer about opening this facility for years. We felt led to offer others the opportunity to benefit from a friendship with horses. God opened doors we never thought He would to create this site. That is how we know He intends to use it for His good.

We are located on a 25 acre farm in Mullins,S.C. with a five stall barn built in 2011 equipped with a bathroom, tack room, feed room and office. There is a 150 x 200 ft outdoor riding arena and a smaller riding ring that is 60 ft wide for beginners and training.  There are several tie areas provided to saddle and bridle the horses. An outdoor wash stall with hot and cold water is also available.

The training we offer consists of general riding lessons as well as education about the care of a horse, the tack involved, and how to promote a safe interaction with the horse. Each of our trainers has over 25 years of experience riding. We also offer small group educational opportunities with limited riding instruction depending on the number of participants.

At this time, God’s Horses does not schedule trail rides. We may consider this in the future as our business expands.

We sponsor group outings for church groups, foster care organizations and cancer support groups, etc… through our Galloping Faith Ministry.

Marion County Healthcare Foundation

Located at 230 South Main Street in Mullins, South Carolina, the foundation was established in 2010 from the proceeds acquired when the Marion County Medical Center was sold.  Governed by the Board of Directors, the foundation manages and invests the charitable funds and uses the interest to aid, support and improve the quality of life in Marion County via grants and scholarships to deserving individuals and organizations. Our staff manages the day to day operations of the foundation that serves Marion County, South Carolina.

All funds are used exclusively for charitable purposes to provide grants to nonprofits or institutions for educational assistance. Most funds are permanent endowments that grow over time and provide a portion to be used for grants and scholarships each year. Funds share modest administrative expenses on a pro rata basis. Assets are invested in our master portfolio unless a donor specifies otherwise.

Financial institutions and investment firms are used for long-term performance to invest our assets. Our board sets investment policies and monitors performance with help from our investment committee and investment advisor. An independent accounting firm audits our accounts annually. We will post investment performance on our website and publish results in our annual report.

We are a catalyst that links community leaders and organizations to tackle key issues. We award grants to nonprofit organizations in our region and work with educational institutions to determine scholarship and educational needs in the community.
