PARTNER WITH US TO KEEP CHILDREN IN THE SADDLE!
Join us in our mission of providing services to children with special needs, regardless of ability to pay. Your financial support is what allows Horses for Healing to subsidize over 75% of the actual cost for horsemanship and riding lessons. Many of our families are already burdened with huge expenses related to their child’s needs.
Child Sponsor - One Year
You can donate to buy hay for our horses. We buy square and round bales of hay. A typical horse eats about 20# of hay per day.
Each horse at the farm is carefully assessed for their hoof care needs. Some do best barefoot while others require shoes. All of them need trimming on a regular basis, which means a farrier visit every 4-8 weeks. It is very important that we take great care of their feet so we can depend on them to be as safe as possible for our kids.
While it may seem easy, our horses actually work very hard during lessons. Since many of them fall into the "elderly" category, we try to do everything we can to help them with their minor aches and pains. An occasional massage not only helps their range of motion and flexibility, but also improves their mental wellbeing. With everything they do for us and the children, we figure it is the least we can do for them!
