Looking for Summer Leaders!
Sugar Creek is special place to make a difference in people's lives, find belonging in community, and connect with God through nature.

In the Wild
The horses at Sugar Creek hold a special place in many hearts. They are beautiful, loving and funny animals that bring joy to those who come to Sugar Creek year round.
The horse's appearance, like many other animals, reflects the change in seasons. Therefore, one may notice our horses looking a bit different in winter than in summer. Horses' coats change from a lighter weight in the summer to a thicker, fuzzier coat to keep them warm in winter. They will begin to shed this heavier coat soon.
This cycle is often mistaken as being a response to the change in temperature when in fact the real trigger for the change is the change in light throughout the year. In fall, the earlier sunsets and diminishing light trigger the automatic response in the horses to grow their thicker winter coat. While now, as spring approaches and the days are getting longer, the increased exposure to light will tell the horses bodies it is time to shed their winter woolies so they can be ready for summer, and campers, once again.

Written by Cecilia Hook
And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years.

Fun Fact: Horses love sweet treats; from fruits and veggies high in sugar, to candies! A favorite among many of our horses are peppermints.
