Horse Sponsorship

Nothing is more important to our program than our equine partners.  The job of a therapy horse, while not physically challenging, can be quite mentally challenging.  We ask the horse to do many things that are counter-intuitive to their nature: being crowded, put up with balls and bean bags being thrown in and out of their vision, to stand quietly in mounting ramp with people above them.  It takes a special horse to do this job, and as such our horses deserve the utmost care.  The cost of feed, supplements, annual shots, medications, farrier care, medical & dental care, staff care and training for one of our horses is about $6,000.00 per year.  Your support will enable us to continue to provide the highest quality of care while continuing to keep the cost of our therapies affordable.
