Wish List Items

Bottled Water
It's important to make sure that our volunteers feel treasured and sometimes its as simple as a bottle of water or soda! It can be a good source of revenue at events as well!

Tack Room
12X12 portable building for our tack room and another for a feed room. We currently are borrowing an enclosed toy hauler for our tack room and trash cans in a small enclosure is our feed room!

2X4's, 2X6's, 4X4's, 4X8 sheets of plywood, sheet metal, roofing material to build shelters for the horses and to build a mounting ramp and mounting block.

English Or Western Tack
We must make sure that the saddle fits the horse and each rider. That makes it necessary to have many different sized saddles. We currently only have 2 western saddles and each one only fits one horse each! Side pulls and bridles with the correct sized bits are needed for each horse!

Coastal Hay
Horse quality Coastal Hay in either round bales or square bales. Moldy hay can be toxic to horses so great care is needed in selecting hay! 12 horses go through one round bale a week. We do have some chubby horses so being able to restrict their hay intake using square baled is my favorite feeding method!

Horse Feed
We use 4 bags of Purina Senior, and 2 bags of Purina Miniature Horse Feed every week! At $almost $20/bag, horse feed costs add up quickly. Gift Cards to Tractor Supply company or Elgin Country Store, coupons for Purina Horse Feed, or actual bags of feed are most appreciated!
