Our values are safety first, to connect, to listen to be clear and to have FUN!!!

Our vision is to build confident people through safe informative programs away from daily distractions in an awesome environment with the use of horses.

MY NAME IS Tina Swanson. My husband Tom and I moved to Guernsey county in 2020 to be close to my parents. We have been working hard to situate our ranch and home to accommodate the needs of our animals and our lifestyle. We continue to be a progress in process so watch us grow.

I was a horse lover girl that grew into a horse loving lady. Once my children arrived I moved into a horse, hog and goat 4-H mom and then began my journey of becoming a certified riding instructor. I volunteered at a riding camp before settling into becoming a ranch manager at a year round camp for 8 years. My leadership skills have been encouraged by years of an entrepreneur mind set. I had a few small businesses in my earlier years that opened up the door of listening to and following many great leadership speakers and it continued on with getting the gift of continued education at camp conferences twice a year where I opted for leadership learning and continued ed with my riding instructor certification. I am now owner and operator of Lantern Lighter Ranch LLC and I’m a Mimi. I love to teach.

Tom is a retired firefighter, EMT, and maintenance man, and is excited to partner with me in this adventure. He will make your stay with us more comfortable, prep our fires, and visit with fun stories.
