Horse Sponsors

Help us to maintain a strong dependable herd to serve the various needs of our clients through Physical or Occupational Therapy, Therapeutic Horsemanship programs, or Equine Facilitated Counseling. For every need, a special kind of horse becomes the perfect partner for a client. Our master instructors are well-versed in choosing the best horses for our programs and creating a healthy environment for them to thrive as therapy partners.

Horse sponsorship levels can be paid annually, quarterly, or monthly:

  • Grand Champions: $7500 – provides overall care for horses: feed, shots, farrier, shavings, transportation, veterinarian, and chiropractic care. These donors get a photo session with their horse.
  • Best in Show: $3000 – provides veterinarian recommended treatments beyond normal care so our horses can continue to be great therapeutic partners into their mature years.
  • Pony Club: $600 – provides nutritional and dietary supplements that keep joints, coats, and hooves supported year-round.

  • Stall plates with donor’s name
  • Listing on our website Horse Page
