How Can You Help? Sponsor a Horse!
Riding for Hope program recipients receive the highest quality therapeutic and adaptive riding experiences available. Our horses are a vital part of these experiences. Our horses receive the highest level of care from our staff, veterinarians and trained volunteers. We believe that if our horses are healthy and happy they will provide the best service they can to help us achieve our mission.
Caring for our herd, consisting currently of nine horses, is a significant part of our program budget. On average, it costs approximately $2,500 each year to provide each of our horses with food, bedding, dental, veterinary and hoof care, tack and blankets. In addition to the costs to keep them fed and healthy, there is also the cost of the manpower hours required to exercise, groom and care for the herd.
Your sponsorship is very important in supporting the backbone of our program – our horses. Once you have had a chance to meet our herd, by clicking on the links below and reading their story, you can choose which of our team members you would like to sponsor.
