Our Story

Owners Kimberly & Alan Finney, purchased the farm in 2015, fully restoring the property to all its original glory.  Lakota's Farm opened for events in 2016.  The grounds are also the home that they share with their dogs, cats and of course the horses too, including the farm's namesake Lakota.  Every animal on Lakota's Farm was a rescued animal and will forever live out there days here. 

Kimberly & Alan's first horses were the horses they named Lakota and Othello who were rescued from a farm where they had both been abused and neglected.  Lakota came with many issues, he is blind in one eye but even more disturbing, he was broken in spirit.  Lakota did not trust people, especially men and would do all that he could to avoid being touched.

Over the course of two years, Kimberly and Alan were slowly able to gain both Lakota and Othello's trust.  Earning this trust took patience and courage on the part of the horses and their caregivers.  Above all, it took forgiveness.  Lakota now accepts affection, he forgave mankind for the cruelties that were done to him and opened his heart up to accept the love they had to offer.  The magnitude of that effort and gesture was not lost on Kimberly and Alan.

"In naming our farm, 'Lakota's Farm', we honor his spirit and remind ourselves daily of rewards that can come from opening your heart."
