Join Forces with Horses

As a small nonprofit, we rely heavily on the support of our local community to keep our program up and running.

By donating, you are directly contributing to the well-being and quality of life of individuals with disabilities, allowing them to experience the physical, emotional, and mental benefits of therapeutic riding. Your donation can make a real difference in the lives of these individuals, providing them with opportunities for growth, independence, and joy.
