Horses are a very big part of our program. There is something about a horse that brings out deep hidden hurts that a child has shared with no one. Perhaps it's the sense of accomplishment that comes from being able to control such a large animal when you have had so little control over what has occurred in your life. The skills learned in order to control a horse help to build confidence, self-esteem and self-worth. The loving bond that is created between the child and his/her horse helps to heal the broken bonds they've experienced.
Sponsor a Horse
The cost of feeding, shoeing, providing veterinary care and deworming on a monthly basis can add up quickly to about $150 per horse. We need YOU to be a Champion in this area to help us cover the cost of healing. You can adopt a horse for as little as $25 a month.
