Is your horse in the lead?

Your support makes a difference.

The health and happiness of our equine partners is essential for conducting safe and effective therapeutic riding sessions. Your sponsorship is essential to our mission: Empowering individuals of all abilities to gain strength and freedom through therapeutic equine connections.

It costs approximately $4000 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.
