About the Ranch
Whispering Meadows Ranch is located in Flagler Beach, Florida and offers a peaceful country setting with oak trees, green pasture and lots of room to roam. Several nature trails throughout the property offer creative and fun exploration of Florida’s diverse plant and animal habitat. In addition, interactive stations such as natures music, animal finds and an outdoor chalkboard make for an enjoyable outdoor experience.
Currently, the ranch has four horses, Cheyanne, Star, Niblet and Lolipop, who are adored by all! The horses love visitors as this often means lots of attention and maybe a few treats. Learn more about our horses...
The equestrian area has room to groom and tack up the horses with a separate washing area nearb and a wheelchair-accessible mounting ramp and viewing area. There is also a pole barn and a 60′round pen for individual work with horses. The centrally located recreational and campfire area is where most of the activities at the ranch take place. This open gathering place provides opportunities for singing, dancing, story telling, picnicking and games. Adjacent to the pasture and activities area is a 15′x30 organic garden filled with flowers, vegetables and a special sensory station.
We strive to be a place where visitors and their families feel welcomed and accepted unconditionally. The ranch’s foundational principles are Christ-centered and we are guided by and fully embrace Christian values, including respect, kindness, and compassion.
Whispering Meadows Ranch is a PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International) Member Center with certified riding instructors that manage all of the equine programs. Our instructors provide a hands-on, friendly approach to encourage those who may be meeting a horse for the first time, educating them in equine safety as well as teaching them the skills to ride independently.
