Funds are needed to build an indoor riding arena, which will allow riders to enjoy the benefits of therapeutic riding year round and will also allow our program to run on rainy days.
Help us realize that dream! No donation is too small and all are greatly appreciated! Thank you!
*An Indoor Riding Facility will also allow us to accommodate more riders (up to 250/year), will create jobs (additional support staff will be needed to upkeep larger barn/more clients), will be available as a community resource for local agencies and organizations. Benefits to year-long therapy include treatment and illness prevention, increased physical fitness (lowering medical costs for clients), progress will be steady and information will be retained (eliminating frustration and creating self-confidence), provides winter activity that does not require legs/mobility/balance, as the typical winter activities do (skiing, hockey, skating, etc).
Current list of Sponsors: Our program, now in its 25th year, is only possible through the generous support of the business community and community organizations. Your support is what enables this program to continue.
