How You Can Help
Horses work wonders for us. Now you can, too.
Saddle Up! horsepower and a broad community of caring individuals help to deliver a profound lifetime impact to our special equestrians. Our riders experience remarkable physical, cognitive, emotional, and social gains as they participate in our Adaptive Therapeutic riding lessons, Therapy Services (physical, occupational and speech therapies), Interactive Vaulting (social/emotional team-based learning), Alumni Transitions (work ready), and the Saddle Up! Equestrian Club.
Your ongoing support ensures that the ride never ends for today’s riders and future generations.
Saddle Up! does not receive any government funding so we rely purely on the support of our broad base of caring individuals like you! Annual gifts of $1,000 or more (made in addition to event contributions) qualify for membership in our Hoofing Society. Hoofing Society membership will be recognized within the calendar year when the gift was made.
The Lauren and Charlotte Uribe Pony Fund for Saddle Up!
This initiative supports Saddle Up!’s immediate need to add 10 horses to the Saddle Up! therapy herd in order to serve our current clients, insure that our therapy horses continue to work a schedule that is best for their physical and mental well-being, and have impact on the children currently on our waiting list in the coming year.
