Wish List Items


Office/Paper Supplies
Paper supplies are a constant need for us. Copy paper, telephone message books, toilet paper, c-fold or roll paper towels and kleenex are always in short supply, and needed to maintain a comfortable and professional environment for our riders. Donations are tax-deductible, and always appreciated!

Australian Stock Saddle Or Endurance Saddle
Needed in good shape for use in therapeutic riding lessons. We are hoping for a larger seat size to accommodate adults who need a more supportive saddle, without a horn. Donations are tax deductible!

Gravel
For re-graveling drive and parking lot. Also looking for a finer gravel to fill cracks in sidewalks to make sure the way is smooth for walkers and wheelchairs.

Horse Trailer
We're looking for a serviceable 2 horse bumper pull trailer to take to local shows, demonstrations, or the vet's office.
