Star Equestrian Support

Our horses are a very important and vital part of our programs Each horse is specially selected for their ability to respond to the emotions of participants, and they have specific gifts and talents just as humans do. These gifts and talents enable our instructors to choose just the right horse for each participant, ensuring a meaningful human-horse connection. A significant relationship with a horse could help facilitate the same relationship with people as well as help participants to achieve personal goals.

Our horses come to us from a variety of backgrounds with a diverse tapestry of skills and temperaments. Each horse goes through specific training during their trial period. Once the horse is either donated or leased, they join our team as listeners, teachers and friends to our participants.

It costs about $3,000 per year to care for a horse at Star Equestrian Center.

Your sponsorship makes a difference. Our horses are an integral part of our therapy team, and taking good care of them is the largest part of our program budget. Your sponsorship will ensure we can continue providing the highest quality of care to our equine partners.

Your sponsorship will support our horses’ health and can provide necessities to help them thrive, such as medical care, food and nutrition, equipment and supplies, and other program costs.
