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

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.
Safety FirstWe 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.
Saddles To ServeTo serve our athlete diversity we are in need of youth English Saddles, Side Saddles, and 15" Western saddles.
Showing Our PatriotismWe 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.
