YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE

Happy, healthy horses are a huge part of what makes our program at Dream Riders successful. Sponsoring a horse is a unique opportunity to make a difference by directly helping a member of our therapeutic herd! Our horses have a very important job and many rely on maintenance medications and supplements in addition to normal upkeep expenses including feed, hay, farrier, dental and veterinary needs.

By becoming a Herd Hero, your donation dollars go directly towards the ongoing care of the horse of your choosing. Herd Hero sponsorships make great gifts to celebrate birthdays, holidays, and other special occasions. Not only is this a great gift idea, but a wonderful program for school kids, church groups, and business organizations! Pick your special horse and become part of this rewarding experience!

Sponsor a horse and become a Dream Riders Herd Hero!

100% of your sponsorship goes to the horses.
