As a nonprofit 501(c)(3) tax-exempt Program, your donations of equipment, funds, and horses are deductible to the full extent allowable by law. Please contact your tax advisor.

HORSE DONATIONS – Our Program’s foundation is its horses and ponies. All of our four-legged therapists are donated. They come from various backgrounds – family pony, polo field, hunter show ring, trail companion, etc.

Prospective new horses must be sound with no vices. They must be under 25 years of age and less than 15.3 Hands. An instructor and volunteer will visit the horse that is offered for donation. The prospective horse will be ridden independently and with a lead line, testing his “bomb proof” ability and suitability for our students. Once approved horses come to the farm for a minimum two-week trial period. The owner receives a Donation Agreement when the horse is moved to the farm.

EQUIPMENT DONATIONS – Items such as bridles, saddles, blankets can be delivered to the farm. A donation letter is sent and the items become property of the Program. Any items which we cannot use, are sold or given to another non-profit horse facility.
