How to Help

It takes $250 per month to take care of each rescue or lesson horse at The Horse Sanctuary. Additional veterinary or farrier care, special feed or supplements can drive that cost much higher. We have developed a number of ways individuals can help:

Sponsor a horse:

Select any school or rescue horse to sponsor. Individuals or groups can pledge any amount up to the full $250 per month. You will be acknowledged as your horse’s special patron. If you live near our facility, you will be welcome to come groom and interact with your sponsored horse.

Sponsor a rider:

For families who cannot afford the therapeutic riding fees, sponsors may be the only way to keep their special-needs child riding. A one-month sponsorship for a rider in group lessons is $140.

Sponsor a group:

The Horse Sanctuary delights in bringing horses and at-risk women and youth together. You can help to make this happen. Running a group program costs $420 per month.

Hay Fund:

Hay is our single biggest expense each year. Your contribution will help keep our horses fed.
