18 November - 23 December, 2020
We are holding a fall fundraising ON-LINE AUCTION. Our goal is to raise $20,000.
We planned a major fundraiser for March, 2020, but like so many things, the event was cancelled due to the pandemic. We were closed with no clients for five months. During that time, we were so blessed to have resources to maintain our horses and facilities.
As we move toward the new year, we are open again (with certain COVID-19 restrictions and limitations). We need your HELP NOW!
How can you help?
This link will take you to the online auction, hosted on Ebay. Browse the donated items and services. Then bid! Unlike voting, here you can bid early, you can bid often, you can bid as many times on as many things as you like! Many items are not limited just to Puerto Rico but are available to send anywhere. You can also donate any item of value: list it yourself or we will do it for you.
EVERY DOLLAR raised will be used to help boost our scholarship fund and to provide needed facility improvements as well as supplies and care for the horses, volunteers, and students who give so much to our community.

SPONSOR A HORSE
We currently have a herd of four superb equines, (three are rescues) - Chocolate, KT, Yunque, and Jibaron. Keeping our horses healthy and happy so they can work at their best is our top priority.
Daily each horse is fed, watered, exercised, groomed, and given time to graze in our pastures at the farm near our center. In addition, they all have regular health checks, visits from the farrier (to trim and shoe their hooves) and veterinary costs for vaccinations and other health care.
The average cost is $100/mo, per horse. We hope to serve more than 200 clients per year, and sponsoring a horse helps make miracles happen by. Please consider sponsoring a horse.
