Stands With The Sun Ranch is home to the 16 Sacred Rainbow Horses, a rare Native line of horses. This herd comes from an Open Range Native herd from Eastern Montana. Authenticated by the Thunderbird in 2005 with 4 lightening strikes to the 4 directions they were gifted to Yogini as horses that provide healing and blessings thru the removal of obstructions and obstacles by elevating people with their energy to provide blessings for the spiritual development.
Yogini has raised all of them, to produce the presence of a solid foundation herd. What you feel first is their peace and total acceptance of you. Truly remarkable in their engagements with people. She established Sacred Earth Conservancy to preserve, protect and maintain their care by also teaching the supporting lifestyle. Donations are welcome.
Like the White Buffalo's being born, the horses are also a sign from Creator of the next set of teachings brought to earth in which there are 7.
While they are a destination all by themselves, we are surrounded by the majestic tall pines of the Chippewa National Forest and pristine lakes. It is an engaging environment of horses, people and nature.
There is so much to experience! From breathing with the trees to tapping birch trees for their water, to the harvests of blueberries, raspberries and strawberries which all naturally grow here. If you are venturing out and about the forest has many trails and lakes. Visit the Lost 40, hike in to picnic at the Joyce Estates on Wabana Lake or kayak around the Hanson Lakes at the end of our road.
Yogini is a Buddhist Bon Yogini, Medicine Clan Elder, and PipeCarrier whose training began in 1995, her native name is pronounced "See Wa Sin". She offers a Purification Ceremony, PipeCeremony and tobacco prayer ties for visitors. Ask to hear their story, do the Mindfulness Path, pet the horses, or chose to sit in silence during your visit. This land is blessed and is considered sacred, to give people a moment of peace and happiness from the stressors of our world.

My daughter and I found For The Love of Sacred Horses and can’t wait to experience it again. Never felt so at peace and protected in nature before. Joy and the horses are a DREAM COME TRUE 🕊❤️☀️
Peaceful farm stay w/ sweet horses
We loved our stay at For the Love of Sacred Horses! It was so peaceful. We especially loved the horses stopping by for their brief hellos. Joy was an excellent host with such amazing stories. We plan to return!
Sacred horses & a spiritual yogini💫
For The Love of Sacred Horses was a magical experience. Yogini Joy is an amazing person, the most amazing person I’ve met. She’s sweet, peaceful, spiritual and brilliant. Not to mention funny. The Sacred Horses, they’re just that. And they come in the most beautiful colors (and personalities). Watching them interact with each other, and with Yogini is a beautiful experience. Letting them become comfortable with me over a few days - letting them come to me when they’re ready was an incredible experience. If you want to experience horses on a spiritual level, as well as understand how to connect on a spiritual level with nature, with yourself, with others with compassion, I highly recommend spending time with Yogini amd her Sacred Wild Horses. I consider myself a spiritual person and yet I’ve learned so much here. This is a special treasure I give the highest of recommendations to. I’m so grateful I found them! 💙💫🐴
We had an incredible stay at Stands With the Sun Ranch.
Joy is truly the embodiment of her name, she greeted us with a big smile and gave us a thorough tour of her property.
We were blown away by the horses! Joy knows them all well, and we loved learning about them, their story, and all the unique personalities they have.
Joy has an incredible knowledge of native american heritage and religion, and it was incredible to hear her stories and experience a moving and powerful tobacco ceremony.
This ranch is an incredible haven, providing peace and relaxation for anyone wanting to take time out of the hustle and bustle of life. The sacred horses were so stunning, we couldn’t get enough time interacting with them and watching them.
We are so lucky we met Joy and got to experience camping on her unique amazing ranch. We hope we get the chance to visit again in the future.
Yogini is an excellent host who makes an effort to connect her guests with her horses and her land. We stayed for 2 nights on her farm and enjoyed the balance between privacy and shared time. Her proximity (driving-distance) to other lakes and trails allowed us to slowly explore northern Minnesota in the summer time. Our campground was near a quiet road and in close proximity to the horses, so we were always surrounded by the peaceful sounds of the wilderness.. Yogini was accommodating and helped make our stay on her farm rejuvenating, we look forward to returning some day!
A warm welcome and sacred horses
Yogini is a special person, with a big heart. She welcomed us to her property with opened arms and taught us and our children about her sacred horses . Yogini taught us about Native American ceremonies and culture. We were blessed to have met her on our journey. If you find yourself in Minnesota please chose her property , we highly recommend it !
