Rider tuition of $45.00 per session covers only one-third of our operating costs, which include boarding, veterinary care, farrier costs and new equipment. In addition, we offer partial riding scholarships to riders from lower-income families. Often we need specialized equipment. For instance, one of our riders required an extra-large helmet, and the only helmet available in the size needed cost $279.00. Large or small, your donation helps!
