Current Needs

This year, we are asking for funding to continue improvements to keep up with new advancements in equine therapy for our students and horses, as well as day-to-day expenses and cost to operate. We are in a small rural community, helping low-income families, we try to keep our costs low. We also encourage volunteering to ensure lessons run smoothly and safely with help leading and side walking.
