Sponsor a Rider
Many clients have financial hardships and are unable to afford lessons, you can help by sponsoring a rider for 1 or more sessions.
I/My child do not have special needs, can we still take lessons?
Yes! We strive to foster an inclusive atmosphere, group lessons are open to individuals of all abilities. General private riding lessons are provided by an instructor at the same rate as our Therapeutic Riding Lessons. Profits from general riding lessons go towards sponsoring Therapeutic Lessons of clients with financial hardships.
Sponsorship is not available for non-therapeutic riding lessons.
