where your money goes

Here's Willow with her new best friend Ava. Willow is taken care of by our board member Karen and her husband Glenn.

We are a currently a completely volunteer-run organization, so all monies donated go directly into the program. Here are some of the things your donation supports:

  • Horse tack and special equipment
  • Insurance for our program
  • Facilities rental
  • Training and ongoing education

Our sincere thanks to everyone that has made a donation. Your generosity really makes a difference, and every donation counts.

“This program benefited my children by building their self esteem, teaching them a life long skill and showing how to care for and treat animals with kindness.”

Dreaming of a place to call home

Someone said if you’re going to dream, you might as well dream big. One day we’d love to have a permanent place to call home, instead of renting space at the fairgrounds. We would ideally love a covered arena so that we could hold sessions year round, as many of the people we serve would benefit from ongoing sessions, and we would be able to open up more spots for additional participants.

If you have a safe, quiet facility that you’d consider allowing us to use, please contact us. We’d love to hear from you.
