What is Hold Your Horses? An inclusive place of healing. HYH facilitates relationships between people, horses, and the natural world to deliver holistic care and restoration. The direct services and programming are the real deal—built by professional occupational and mental health therapists in a way that addresses the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of any healing journey. Hold Your Horses is place to find connection, meaning, and healing. More people deserve access to this place, its people, and its horses.

Why Team Ninja? I got my first glimpse of  "Barn Magic" from Ninja. He came up to me and nuzzled into my chest as if to say, "You belong here." Ninja is a sensitive tough guy, who is learning to channel all his emotions and energy. He doesn't like to be separated from his friends Yoder and Bingo, but also likes them to know he is the one in charge. He is particularly attuned to our Farm Manager, Lindsay Shank, and watching them together will break your heart—in all the good ways.

What will I do for every $100 donated? Pie in face. I will video record the HYH team throwing a whipped cream pie at my face for every $100 donated. I'll even wear a lady derby hat to boot! 

Update! The first pie has been tossed:

Rose and Ida will be your virtual guides for our second annual $10K horse race and derby fun. Place your bets with a supporting donation to your favorite horse. Therapy horses don't win with speed they win our hearts with healing and love so show your support for their good work.

All funds raised during this event will support work at the farm. We are currently in need of roof repairs to keep the wet out of the barn during the spring rains. Plus this exciting news! When we reach $10k dollars donated HYH will receive a $5000 donation from a mystery supporter. Help us reach our goal and support HYH!

Support your horse to win: Now through May 7
Winner announced: May 9th
