When Allie and Jeremy Barnett started looking for a new place to live, they knew they wanted a farm. Horses have a special place in Allie’s heart.

“When I was younger I struggled with a lot of depression and anxiety type issues and horses were just always kind of my safe haven and really changed my life in a lot of ways,” said Allie Barnett.

Allie, a registered nurse is also a certified therapeutic horseback riding instructor and has started a non profit called Safe Haven Equine Ministries.

“Our mission is to serve teenagers ages 12-18 that struggle with depression and anxiety related disorders through the use of just being outdoors and interacting with horses,” said Barnett.

To make their dream a reality, the Barnett’s found a farm in Bourbon County. It had just what they needed land, a barn and a place to live.

To save money and focus all of their time and energy on their horse ministry the Barnett’s are joined a growing new trend in “Tiny House” living.
