Sponsor a Horse
It is expensive to board a horse. Help shoulder some of the cost so that we can focus on keeping cost low for our equine therapy clients.
Sponsor Our Therapy Horses Simon and Jasper
Help Feed Simon and Jasper
Purchase Hay for One Month
A horse the size of Simon or Jasper eats on average 8 bales of hay a month. This amounts to $1,320 a year in hay alone.
Purchase Grain and Supplements for One Month
Simon and Jasper are fed grain in addition to the hay that they eat. Grain supplies more energy per pound than hay, which allows the horses to perform for therapy. Horses typically go through roughly one bag of grain in a month each. Horses also receive supplements to keep their coats shiny and their joints strong. This amounts to $540 a year in grain and supplements.
Help Keep Simon and Jasper Healthy
Purchase a Farrier Service
Simon and Jasper have their hooves trimmed every 6 to 8 weeks.
Purchase Deworming and Vaccinations for the Year
Simon and Jasper are given dewormer quarterly and vaccines biannually.
Help Train Simon and Jasper
Purchase One Week of Training Session for Simon
The Draper Sensory Method requires a horse to walk in a specific way at a particular speed. The horse also needs to be desensitized to various objects on or off of them. This can take a horse 6 months to 1 year of training to perfect. Training sessions are 15-30 minutes in duration and should happen daily.
Sponsor a Therapy Session
Purchase One 30 Minute Session
The Draper Sensory Method is shown to produce significant positive changes within 10 sessions. Clients come three times a week for the first 2 weeks and then will continue to come once a week for the following weeks.
