YOUR support makes an impact. 

Without our horses we cannot impact the lives of those who need us. The health and happiness of our equine partners is essential for conducting safe and effective equine activities and therapies.

Your sponsorship is vital to our mission. 

Empowering individuals of all abilities to gain strength and freedom through therapeutic equine connections.

It costs approximately $4,000 per year to provide routine care for each therapy horse. Your support allows us to keep our herd in tip-top shape so that together we can provide opportunities for our participants to thrive.
