Large Horse Needed to Help Disabled and Special Needs Children
AHEAD With Horses is currently looking for someone willing to donate a large horse (preferably a draft) for use in our program. We are looking for a horse with the following attributes:
- Strong, sturdy back that would be capable of carrying two (2) people at once. We are looking for a horse that could handle one of our Instructors riding with a child who is unable to sit independently.
- Calm, low tendency to spook
- Good ground manners
- Able to trailer
- No major health issues
- Between the ages of 8-18
- Willing to have a 30 day trial period (to make sure they are well suited for this type of work)
The donor will get a donation letter that would allow him or her to use the amount the horse is worth as a tax deduction. AHEAD With Horses is a non-profit, and while we know that a fantastic horse can cost a fortune, we are unable to purchase what we need for what they are truly worth. To our program, a Therapy Horse is invaluable.
In exchange for the horse, AHEAD With Horses will give the owner the peace of mind that his or her horse will be well taken care of and loved and will be changing lives.
If you, or someone you know, think you might have a horse that fits all of the criteria, please call our office at (818) 767–6373.
