Horses have the unique beauty and gift of teaching us more about ourselves than about them. Horses will test you, teach you, and bring out the best in you. As a family-run community, we feel incredibly blessed to grow and learn daily in our horsemanship, to be a part of a wonderful community and to be passionately invested in what we now call our home.
Words cannot capture the spirit of the horse or the experience of being in their presence. I have always loved horses and the opportunity of partnering with these wonderful animals has been a dream that I have yet to wake up from…may I ‘forever sleep!!’. Their movement, thoughts, and actions have always captivated me and it is these qualities that have brought me to this place. My goal and passion are for every person to experience that which cannot be expressed in words.
Buffy and Darlene (Dar) share the same vision, passion, and philosophy. Together they continue to spur each other on in order to accomplish their purpose. Mission Acres has given them the opportunity to incorporate their love for the horse and people in an environment that can "take your breath away".
"There is something about the outside of the horse that is good for the inside of a man".
-Sir Winston Churchill
Our Journey and Mission
"Although the horsemanship journey was not purposely embarked upon by our family, the unique opportunity that began unfolding since Mission Acres was established in September of 2018 has become our reality, and one that has never been more fulfilling.
Our mission as a family is to continue to grow and learn in our horsemanship, help others, impact lives, work hard, support each other, and, most importantly, to always spread kindness and appreciate the realization that family is not an important thing, it’s everything!
Welcome to our Mission Acres community!"
-The Afseth Family
"Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier".
