Horses + Humans = Positive Changes.
It is this formula that Hearts uses to assist riders who face the challenges of autism and physical and developmental disabilities and who are veterans returning home from service to our country. Our equine assisted riding program addresses the physical and emotional needs of our clients through PATH certified equine activities. In an effort to make these activities affordable to our riders, their monthly cost of lessons only covers about 70% of the monthly program operating expenses. As such, we rely on outside support to maintain and grow current operations, and to help fund operating costs not covered by lessons. It is through donations from generous supporters like you that allow Hearts to continue to serve our clients and serve our community. “Our hoof beats are many, but our hearts are one.”
Hearts Equestrian Games is a combination fundraiser and horse show. All the participants must raise at least $50 to participate in the games however the individual that raises the most money wins a month of free lessons! Prizes are awarded to the individuals who fundraise the 2nd and 3rd highest amounts as well. During the show each rider will ride through a trail course, compete on the rail, and perform their showcase skill. The Games is a day filled with fun where the riders get to show off all they have learned in their lessons. Your support allows Hearts to help these awesome riders meet their goals both for the show and in their lessons through out the year.
