Life affords no higher pleasure than that of surmounting difficulties, passing from one step of success to another, forming new wishes and seeing them gratified.Samuel Johnson

Hippotherapy services

While hippotherapy services may be covered under private and state insurance programs, payment for services rarely equals the cost of those services. There often is a lack of funding for individuals/families seeking therapeutic riding services that do not fall under the hippotherapy classification. That leaves a large financial void and consequently those individuals/families have to personally pay (if they can), forego such services, or rely upon the generosity of individual donors, of which we hope you are one.

“A society will be judged by how it treats its smallest members.” -Harry Truman

If you would like to show your support for our special needs riders, you may do so by printing out our donation form from the link below and sending it in to us with a donation. If you prefer, you may also make an online contribution via Paypal, by following that link, also noted below. Each year we ask the community and area businesses to help support the program. We operate year round, and despite the use of volunteers and the reduced fees for the instructors and therapists, the average cost, including the significant costs associated with the board and upkeep of the horses to support one rider for a year is just under $2,500.00.
