We have found a location and are planning to move in early 2018, after which we will be able to begin therapeutic riding sessions for all who need them! We are actively looking for a shipping container and well-constructed shed for tack and equipment storage. We also need a portable building donated for office and "rainy day lesson" use.
Donate a Horse.
It takes a very special horse to make a therapeutic riding horse. We carefully screen candidates to ensure that they are physically sound for their work, but also to be certain that they are a personality match for their jobs and will be happy in their careers as therapeutic riding horses. If you know of a horse that might be suitable for donation, please contact us to begin the screening process.
Guidelines for horse donations:
- +4 years under saddle experience
- Natural low-flight response
- Don't mind monotonous, slow arena work
- At ease in groups and on trails
- Aged 8 -18 years old
- 14 – 16 hands
Donate Gently used Tack and Equipment.
Have gently used tack, horse equipment, and riding wear? What we can't use in our program can can be re-sold to pay for rider scholarships. Contact us to donate tack, horse equipment, yoga equipment and art supplies.
Sponsor a Horse or Riding Class.
It's no surprise that our equestrian program is the most expensive to provide, with the cost of keeping horses being the organization's largest expense. Generous donors can help by sponsoring the horses who work in our program, donating to our rider scholarships, or sponsoring a riding class for a semester/term.
