2024 Barn Dance Sponsorship & Donations

Saturday, June 1, 2024, 5:00 pm

We have decided that instead of our traditional gala, we are going to hold a Barn Dance! We have so much to be proud of at our center! We made it through Covid, our Veteran’s program is back in full swing, Connected Horse is still serving those dealing with Alzheimer’s and dementia, and alumni camp is a huge success.  Not to mention the magic that is happening every day during lessons and therapy sessions.   We need to show off and get folks intimately connected to all the good work we are doing every single day!  We want our donors, friends and neighbors to come out, meet our horses, our participants, our staff and our volunteers.  What better way than a party at the center. 

 Line dancing!

Cowboy boots!

Cowboy hats!


Games in the Round Pen!

Demo in the Lower Arena!

Meet our participants!

Meet and greet with the Xenophon horses!

Live Auction!

We hope you can join us. If you can’t, you can still be a part of this celebration through your Donation!

Become a Sponsor!

Our Barrn Dance, in lieu of our annual gala, needs to raise a significant portion of our operating budget, and sponsorship of this event is one of the fundamentals of its success. These funds allow us to provide a wide range of high quality equine activities. Did you know that every singe program we offer is subsidized? Did you know that we offer scholarships to anyone who cannot afford to pay? Join us this year by becoming a sponsor.  We’ll get your company name out to the community as a supporter of our life-changing programs!

We have several levels to match your support…see our Sponsor Form for full details:
