Barn Repairs Needed, Horses Turn to #GivingTuesday

Hearts & Hooves is blessed with a wonderful facility, but make no mistake: it doesn't stay wonderful all on its own!  Maintaining a working farm requires a lot of upkeep, which requires daily attention, skilled volunteers and donated dollars.  Hearts & Hooves makes it top prioirty to be good stewards of every dollar given to us, which means we impliment lots of cost-saving methods and use every resource we have.  

Currently, the staff is working to find donations, discounts and volunteer services to help make some very needed repairs to the Therapy Horse Barn.  The biggest need is in roof repair, to take out the skylights and repair the leaks.  It's so important to maintain the integrity of the building, as well as ensure our saddles and other equipment are not ruined by water damage, and most importantly, that our valuable equine partners stay warm and dry while in their stalls!

You can help!  Participate in our booster sale--proceeds from this campaign go towards barn repairs.  Give  a heavy-weight sweatshirt or long-sleeved t-shirt to your favorite rider, volunteer, horseperson, or Hearts & Hooves supporter, and you're also giving to H&H's equine staff.  Read more about this campaign, and purchase your shirt here:

Don't want a shirt, but want to help?  We are dedicating all donations given on #GivingTuesday on December 1, 2015. (Don't know what giving Tuesday is? Check out this webpage:  Help us spread the word on social media by sharing on Facebook, retweeting, and sharing the image below.  Let's help our horses stay happy and dry this winter!



You're Invited to the Horse Party!

Welcome one, welcome all!  The horses are throwing a party this December.  Come join us for caroling, hot chocolate, friends and more!  We will start in the barn with hot chocolate and carols, and then move to the Therapy Room where the Christmas tree with be up.  Our riders will help out their horse friends by opening their Christmas presents.  Come join your “barn family” for treats, holiday cheer, and fun around the Christmas tree!  As Sam mentioned in the invitation he’s sending out, the human staff of Hearts & Hooves has typed up the horses’ Christmas lists, and they’re here for you.  You can also find these on the tree by the arena—take an ornament from our Angel Tree and make your favorite horse’s Christmas even better!

Remember: if you shope, check Hearts & Hooves as your beneficiary, and Amazon will donate to us for every dollar you spend!

Volunteer Testimonials

"Mason has a handicapped younger brother and feels right at home working alongside children with special needs.  He finds it rewarding to build relationships with the kids while helping them learn new skills.  He is an encouraging, yet protective leader.  His biggest challenge has been learning how to communicate in different ways.  He previously took riding lessons and also enjoys grooming and handling the horses.  Hearts & Hooves is a perfect fit for Mason and he loves spending time volunteering!"  --Susan (mother of a teenage volunteer)
