SPONSOR YOUR FAVORITE HORSE

Our horses are important members of the Mane Stream family! They work hard every day to provide equine assisted therapy and adaptive riding for our participants, ensuring that every session and lesson is a positive experience. 

Most of our horses join the Mane Stream herd as a second or third career. They are often well into their teens when they begin their work at Mane Stream and have a little more wear and tear, requiring a higher level of care. 

Our horses are an essential element of our program and most importantly, part of the Mane Stream family and we take of them with this in mind. We know that our volunteers and participants love our horses too and we are excited to be able to offer everyone the opportunity to support our herd's care through sponsorships.

Full Year - $10,000 Your gift will support everything your horse requires for the entire year - feed, bedding, equipment, supplies, veterinary and farrier care and any necessary medications and/or supplements.  You'll hear about your horse's life at Mane Stream throughout the year with monthly updates. 

Season - $2,500 Your gift will support everything your horse requires for the season of your choice - feed, bedding, equipment, supplies, veterinary and farrier care and any necessary medications and/or supplements.  You'll hear about your horse's life at Mane Stream with monthly updates for the season (winter, spring, summer or fall.)
