Simply put, our programs would not be possible with our volunteers! Our volunteers donate time, energy, and expertise, and we truly appreciate them. Volunteer opportunities include helping with horsemanship sessions, mentoring youth, and helping with horse and barn care. No experience, no problem- we will train you! If you’re interested in joining our community of awesome, hard working volunteers, let us know.
Sponsor a Horse
One of the ways that we make our programs affordable and accessible to all income levels is though sponsorships! For $1500 a year, you or your company can sponsor one of our awesome therapeutic riding horses. This helps to cover feed, hay, farrier and vet care. We will recognize you on our website, at the barn, and everywhere else we can think of-and you get regular updates on ‘your’ horse, and how they are making someone’s dreams come true! Partial sponsorships are available as well.
Sponsor a Rider
Many of our riders come from low income families, or have major medical costs. For $300, you can sponsor 10 weeks of therapeutic riding for a child or adult with disabilities. Sponsorships allow us to provide therapeutic riding lessons on an income based sliding scale, offering assistance to those that need it most, and allowing everyone access to our programs.
Donate a Horse
We are choosy about accepting donated horses. Like our staff, our horses provide care to children. If you believe your horse has what it takes to become part of our team, contact us to discuss donation or long term loan.
Our horses are like family, and normally retire at our facility. We look for horses who have great minds, and are sound enough to walk, trot, and canter comfortably. Working as a therapeutic riding horse can be physically and emotionally demanding, so we generally require a 3-month trial period to ensure your horse is a good fit and likes his new job.
