Kaitlyn's Success Story


Manna's Hana Riding Center was just a dream. Today, we are continuing to impacting the lives of children with special needs and their families. God has birthed this ministry and I am thankful that I said "yes" to His calling. The horses are amazing with the children and teach them to be patient and kind.

A few months after Carolyn Acuff and her family were devastated by the loss of her 18-year-old son, she started having dreams about children riding horses. She had owned horses and her children had ridden them, so at first she thought she was only dreaming about the past. The same dream kept returning night after night. "There's something that was really bothering me about it," she said. "I can't see the children's faces and the horses don't look right. Then I had the dream again, and this time the kids turned to face me -- they're not my children. I didn't tell anybody this dream for more than 10 years." She didn't understand the dream until she met Bobbie Abell.
