Valley Mount Ranch

Valley Mount Ranch


The first of its kind in the St. Louis area, this project is a joint venture between two nonprofit orgs: The Wet Nose Project, Clares House.

Fenton resident Tracy Rumpf, co-founder of The Wet Nose Project: “Every dog should know love and warmth and comfort, no matter what age... That’s what we’re going to do at Second Chance Ranch.”

The half-acre property, which is part of Valley Mount Ranch equestrian center, will feature a fenced-in yard with a bone-shaped wading pool where the dogs can swim and play in the summer.
I have many fond memories of riding the trails when I was a kid. My mom brought me to ride frequently the year my dad died. I loved not having to wear a helmet back then! Thanks for being there Valley Mount Ranch!🐎

Our Summer Camps are starting to fill - Don't miss a chance to send your kid to a fun camp where they also learn about horses.
What horses are available to lease? I'm very interested. Jennifer Duff said red would be a good match?
Our Alivia's horse "Lilli" is still missing. She spooked and bolted Friday afternoon from our home on John McKeever near Byrnesville Rd. in House Springs. We have received many prayers, concerns, and helpers in searching for her but have not seen her yet. There was a loose horse seen and returned to its owners Saturday in High Ridge. We are very happy for that family, but it was not our Lilli. Lilli is a beautiful bay (copper brown with dark brown mane and tail). She is likely going to be a little spooky after being out in rain and fireworks over the weekend. APPROACH WITH CAUTION AND CARE - Call 911 - Call 636-734-3296 - 636-797-5577 (Jeffco Animal Control).

Our current search area is Byrnesville Rd over to Hwy FF between Lynch Rd and Hwy W. Horse friends think she might have headed toward the Young Conservation Area. Our plea is for continued prayers, concerns, shares of this post, and any assistance and eyes looking in and around that area.

We have been in contact with police, equine organizations, and have posting on several FB pages, equine-related and personal. If you can share this post with FB friends we would greatly appreciate it.

WE ARE OFFERING A REWARD FOR HER SAFE RETURN. We are poised to be at her found or sighted location quickly.

If you see her please contact 636-734-3296 and you can also call 911 or Jefferson County Animal Control at 636-797-5577. If you have suggestions, sightings, searchers, all help is welcome and deeply appreciated by our 9 year old little Alivia, our family, and our scared, loose "Lilli" who is out there somewhere hoping to get back home to her barn.
