Dick Foster is a superintendent at Haynes International, father of three, and grandfather of seven. He is also an active church member at Crossroads Community Church and oversees the maintenance and grounds work at Narrow Gate Horse Ranch. He is a “behind the scenes” kind of guy who has spent many hours improving the property, making sure equipment runs properly, and helping at special events. The ranch would suffer without his wisdom and expertise.
Stanley J. Pugh is an ordained minister, with a Master’s Degree in Leadership. His experience in ministry leadership is extensive, holding such positions as Pastoral Care Elder, Facilitator/World Harvest External Studies Program, Men’s Group Leader, and Kokomo Rescue Mission Internship, just to name a few. Stanley finds himself drawn to the hurting, lost, confused, and those who desire to grow in the Lord. He loves to give, share, and teach people about the power of God’s love. As an Apostle of Love, he’s been called to empower and prepare God’s people to experience God, and each other, at new levels of intimacy and understanding. Stanley’s desire is to teach his students to know God intimately, obey Him, and help them mine the many treasures God has placed within them. Helping people know, and fulfill their purpose in Christ is his ultimate passion. In sharing God’s love, together we’ll experience the transforming power of God’s love.

Soldier is a 17-year-old gelding and a survivor. Rescued from an abusive owner, Soldier has not only adapted to life at his new home, he is thriving. He loves two things most of all: people and food - though not necessarily in that order.
This sweet-natured Palomino is Reno. The scar on his neck tells the story of his own abuse as a young colt from his father. Reno grew up and sired many foals himself. While some stud horses are aggressive, that is not Reno. He has even had his time in the show ring and is easy to love.
This special mare lost her cowgirl in the young girl’s untimely passing and was lost herself too for a while. She has regained her purpose though with the kids here at the ranch and knows how to invite them into purposeful moments.
Sabbath was a caring mother and prize winning show horse. An infection took her right eye more than a decade ago, but she has adapted to her limited sight by staying close to her herd and being extra aware. She continues in her nurturing ways with the kids who visit the ranch - ever patient, always kind.
Molly likes to think she is the boss of the herd and wants her nose in everything. Nothing escapes her watchful eye. She’s got spunk and a little attitude at times, but rounds out the herd nicely, always offering opportunities of growth to anyone she encounters.
