Ana Lucore, Founder, CEO, President, and Public Relations Liaison

Benson, AZ 85602

In 1998 Ana spent a year in the Transkei of South Africa when that location was being absorbed into the country of South Africa. Transkei had been an independent country -- the Xhosa location where Mandela was born. This God-given opportunity enriched Ana's worldview and increased her desire to minister to Him in whatever way He desired. With that request, He dropped a vision into her heart which later proved to be All The King’s Horses Children’s Ranch.

Time for writing and speaking are the avenues Ana will pursue in the future years of her retirement. To request a copy of Ana's books From Invisible, the "biography" of All the King's Horses Children's Ranch, From Africa, written second, but happened first or to see her upcoming speaking engagements please CLICK HERE
