WE NEEDED TO GROW THE HERD!
Lift Me Up's Therapeutic Riding and Wellness Programs rely on having enough horses for lessons with riders and wellness participants. By January 2022, we found that our aging and sometimes injured herd weren't able to accommodate the numbers of riders wanting lessons. Some horses were working more hours and carrying too much of the workload. Over 30 children are on the waitlist, but we want everyone to join in.
After looking far and wide, we finally found not one, but TWO mares who worked as cattle horses and are perfect for Lift Me Up! We budgeted for one horse, but had the chance to buy companions Sloan & Vizi who also can field together, so we could meet our riding demand. There is one more pony -Serafina- we would like to add to the herd for smaller riders.
We are asking our community to help us raise the money needed to fund all these new horses, so we can increase the number of riders, and wellness participants like teens and first responders.
Our Goal: $12,000 .... amount raised so far $6445!
