Horsefeathers could use your help
Currently, the classes at Horsefeathers operate in an open arena. While this is okay when the weather cooperates, it’s not okay when we have rain, snow or high winds. As with any therapy, you must have consistency so when we can’t provide classes due to weather our consistency is lost. Therefore, we have a great need to raise money for a covered riding arena so we can be consistent.
We have a constant need for funding to support our equine employees. The cost to maintain one horse for a year is approximately $1200.00. We have seven working equines. This does not include emergency veterinary care, stable and fencing repairs, tack, saddle blankets, or grooming supplies. One way you can help is to sponsor a horse for a month or a portion of a year. Please visit our Meet the Horses page, if you would like to sponsor a specific horse.
The cost for lessons is $35 per class, $350 per session (10 classes) and we have four sessions per year. Some students cannot afford to pay for lessons. We will not turn anyone away that needs our services because they do not have the ability to pay, so another way you can help is to sponsor a student.
Volunteers are always welcome to help with everything from facility maintenance and horse care to classes. Volunteers are taught from the ground up on what it takes to care for a horse. It is a great opportunity for anyone interested in horses to learn proper care, feeding, grooming, saddling, etc.
