We are building a wellness and therapeutic riding center for the community in the beautiful Ojai Valley just inland of Ventura, California. We are dedicated to building an organization that enriches the lives of everyone involved: riders, participants, volunteers, donors, community members, staff, and horses. We welcome you to join our efforts in making horses and wellness therapies available to those who need them.
Most importantly, we need to raise funds to cover all the things we need to pay for to make wellness work. While we still need a location, we are very close to committing to a facility which would allow us to start small, but still have have room to grow. Of course, we need funding to ensure that we can pay to lease the facility. With the location we have in mind, we'd be off and running with therapeutic riding, art, yoga, and body movement.
Please note, we're incorporated but we have one more step before applying for 501(c)(3), non-profit status. However, our lawyer, Fernando Velez, at Reicker, Pfau, Pyle & McRoy assures us that we can accept donations while we are going through the process. The IRS explains this quite clearly here. If you have questions, please contact us.
We can use equipment for horses, art, yoga, and so on. We own one horse and have several leased horses, but will entertain horse donations it if it is the right horse. Please contact us if you would like to donate equipment, a location, or a horse. Check out our wish list if you would like to donate a specific item we need.
