Horse Sponsorship Program

A therapeutic horse must be kind, gentle and patient. They are the heart and soul of our program and take on the role of friend, teacher, confidante, and therapist. Maintaining their health and condition is important to the success of our program.

The cost of maintaining a therapy horse is approximately $4,000 a year. Costs may include feed, bedding, farrier (foot care), veterinary costs, medication and supplements and replacing special tack. In addition to the finances required to keep them healthy and fed, there is also the cost of the manpower hours to train and care for the herd.

You can become a Full or Half Sponsor. Half year sponsors donate $2,000 for their horse, and Full year sponsors donate $4,000. This opportunity allows you or your organization to help us offset the cost of caring for one of the most valuable parts of our program. All sponsorships are tax deductible, and a receipt will be issued.
