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 and shelter of horses.

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:
CHAPS mission is to provide quality equine therapies to youth, adults and veterans in Sheridan and Johnson Counties.

Volunteer Opportunities

CHAPS is seeking volunteers to assist clients in lessons. Commitment is 90 minutes once weekly. You pick your day and time. Training is required.

Wish List Items

Large Weed Sprayer Attachment For 4-wheeler
With a large weed sprayer attachment for the 4-wheeler, we could spray many more weeds to keep our pastures healthy for our herd.

Brush Hog
CHAPS is in need of a brush hog to help us maintain our pastures and paddocks. Currently, we use a riding lawn mower to mow the worst of the weeds, but it is inefficient and hard on the mower.

Arena Disc
Unless we rent the equipment, we have no way of keeping our arena footing in good shape for the horses. Rentals are quite expensive, making it difficult to do more than once a year.

Easy-Entry Driving Cart In Horse Size
Our driving program is in need of a light weight, easy entry driving cart for our older clients. We need a horse size cart.

Purina Senior Horse Feed Or Purina Omolean 200
Our herd is comprised of geriatric and "middle-aged" horses. Each horse is hand fed a diet to meet his or her specific needs.

Hay - Large Rounds Or Small Squares
CHAPS needs hay for our herd: grass or grass/alfalfa mix. Large rounds or small squares preferred. Need approximately 10 tons.
