Our Therapy Herd

Meet our therapy herd of horses. Many are available for sponsorship! By sponsoring an Equest therapy horse, for $5,000 for one year, you will provide the necessary funds to support the yearly cost of his or her care, including feed, shavings, horseshoes, veterinary care, tack and stall management. The actual cost to feed and care for one horse at Equest averages $5,000 a year. The Equest Sponsorship Program helps offset the required costs to keep our horses in the best possible condition for our extraordinary clients. For more information about sponsoring a horse, please visit our donate page, or contact Director of Development Christine Volkmer
