STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Yunque & Jibaron

We are committed to providing services for  ALL individuals - including those who cannot afford to pay for services.

 

We hope to serve more than 200 clients per year. In order to accomplish this, we need funding for individuals who do not have the means to pay for services.

 

Sponsors who donate are giving a gift of hope to individuals who need it most, and deserve our services.

OPERATION HORSE TRANSPORT

We need a 3-horse trailer and a truck to pull it. Total cost $20,000 (will be buying used, but in good condition). There are four important reasons for this:

  1. We presently have no way to transport our horses if there is a veterinary emergency. This is critical. If we cannot get a horse to a clinic (for surgery or other specialized care), we are endangering the horse’s life as there is no one else in the area who can provide transportation quickly and adequately.

  2. We need storage for equipment, tack, and therapy supplies which we take for every class from the farm to the center in our personal vehicle. With the trailer, we can put those things inside, and leave them at the center - locked and protected and with easy access for our lessons.

  3. As we do more community outreach, it is important that we are able to travel to places such as schools, senior centers, community centers – and bring our horses, the star members of our team, with us.

  4. ­­­Finally, as we empower more clients to ride and work with our horses, we want to be able to take them to equine events on the island where they can participate as peers with other equestrians.

SUPPORT OUR HORSES

We currently have a herd of five superb equines, (four of them are rescues) - KTJ, Yunque, Jibaron, Boo, and the most recent addition, Ché. 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 $300/month per horse. We hope to serve more than 200 clients per year. Supporting our horses helps make miracles happen by.
