Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.

Our organization is directly responsible for the care of horses to provide its services.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
To provide a place in perpetuity where people with disabilities can be successful, equal, and capable, growing to their maximum life's potential through interaction with horses in a positive environment.

Horse-related programs:
We are a therapeutic riding program operating in the recreation/education/sport sector and serving those who cannot afford to pay. Our athletes have the opportunity to attend horse shows restricted to persons with disabilities and to open horse shows each year. As our athletes and their families have expendable funds they give what they can to our program.<br/><br/>Additionally we have program for adjudicated youth who assist in facility maintenance and sometimes in horse care. This program's goal is to put the adjudicated youth back on positive life paths.<br/><br/>Our all volunteer effort connects families and horses providing both acceptance and support to all.

Non-horse-related programs:
We have no non-horse related programs.

Wish List Items

Home Sweet Home
WE MUST MOVE as our currently leased property is up for sale. A future home has been located. Now our challenge is to pay for it. Our website has PayPal buttons and there is a GoFundMe page too. As of August 1, 2017 we have raised $53,648.55. Goal: $1,000,000 to pay for the property and relocate by December 31, 2018. Donors recognized as Honorary Landowners. Naming opportunities available.

Just 4 More Wheels
Our real need is a truck to pull an 8-horse trailer. Used in good condition is fine as we don't put many miles on in a year. We are looking for a Ford 350 or 450 or Chevy/GMC 3500 dually.

Hand Tools
Pruning tools, garden clippers, and hoes are needed to maintain our fence lines and allow us to teach adjudicated youth and truant students what life will be like if they continue down their negative path.

Saddles To Serve
To serve our athlete diversity we are in need of youth English Saddles, Side Saddles, and 15" Western saddles.

Showing Our Patriotism
We need a flagpole(s) that will allow us to display our US and Vietnam Commemoration flags. Would also like to have a Texas flag to fly as well.

Safety First
We need six pair of Peacock Stirrups, and 8 pair of Western Safety Stirrups to provide the safest possible equipment for our athletes with disabilities. The Peacocks run about $75 and the Western about $175 a pair. Sponsors and donors welcome.

Secure Storage
We are looking for one cargo container -- 40' container preferred. Need to be able to be closed securely and keep rain out.

Sponsor A Horse
Our herd loves to eat, regularly has their hooves trimmed, and sees the veterinarian for a well visit each year. They carefully teach each of our riders with disabilities. Two hundred dollars sponsors a horse for one month. Twenty-four hundred dollars sponsors a horse for one year.
