Our

Programs

 

We are offering two programs at this time.
In the first program each child will receive 9 half hour
riding lessons and 3 hours of general horse care lessons
over a three month session. This program will cost $600 per
child. The second program is a full week of horse camp
which will give a child 30 hours of intense horseback riding
and horse care. This program will cost $400 per child.

We are presently trying to raise money through

grants, individual and corporate donations, and
fundraising to help as many children as possible
enjoy these amazing animals.

 

All Donations are

Tax-Deductible

About Us

 


We are a non-profit 501(3)c group set up to help
underprivileged children have a horseback riding experience.

Our group is run with all volunteers dedicating their time to
help these children enjoy these animals we so love.
We offer scholarships to children who could not otherwise afford riding lessons. The scholarships are based on financial need. The State of Connecticut has set up income guidelines that the public schools use to determine if a child is in need of aid such as free lunch. We use the same income guidelines to determine a child's financial need. There are two scholarships available - a full scholarship or a partial scholarship; both are based on these guidelines.

There is a three page application each applicant is asked to fill out.
Each child must compose an essay stating why they wish to ride horses.

Each application, essay and recommendation will be placed in front
of our board who have the final vote of how the funds will
be distributed. We are hoping to raise enough money so that
all the children who are interested in riding
will have a chance to join our program.
