Public Charity

View our WEBSITE

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.

Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
To create and maintain a family friendly environment that will promote equine based learning and facilitate safe interaction for both individuals and small groups.

Volunteer Opportunities

Site Checker
Minimum Age: 15
We have a 20+ page website, a blog, two online shops, and more than 50 lenses on Squidoo. I would love to have someone that would be willing to periodically check the hyperlinks, video clips, etc. and make sure they are still functional.

Wish List Items

Equiderma Lotion
Works wonders on skin irritations, but it is awfully expensive for us (about $24 per bottle).

Storage Building
Medium sized shed to store tack and other equipment (the auger, muck cart, tubs, rakes, etc.) These items are currently crammed into the feed room, which is barely navigable.

Large Pull Cart
One that we can use to haul feed, square bales and other heavy items for relatively short distances.

Gift Cards
Jeffers, Tractor Supply, Lowe's, Home Depot, Office Depot, Office Max. This covers pretty much everything we need, from horse supplies to visitor handouts.

"Mane & Tail" Detangler
This is the least expensive best working stuff we've found. Four of the horses have very long manes, so we go through a bottle very quickly to keep them from becoming snarled.

Medium Sized Tractor
I feel silly putting this on here (it's so BIG), but since this is a wish list here it is: We are currently hand spraying (weeds) and pushing (to plant rye grass) the entire 7 acres of pasture. This would much more efficient with a tractor (and far less tiring ;o)

Arabian Sized Halters
We try to keep one nice halter (for use during farm visits) and use the old ones as spares during storms and/or hurricane season (as a precaution). We have four spare Arabian Halters and one nice one (so we could use a few more of the nice ones).

Skin Renovator
With nine horses running around in the pasture, we have our share of dings and dents. We have found this to be terrific for promoting rapid healing (and it doesn't sting either :o)
