The Equine Challengers, New Smyrna Beach, Florida.

We are in need of Volunteers more that anything to keep these kids riding. My husband and I have just recently purchased the 3 acres next to our center, and our dream is to be able to build a small covered arena, with the help of the community if possible to be able to let these kids ride year round. The kids miss alot of riding time from the heat of the sun or the rainy season.


Hereos On Horseback

Heroes On Horseback, a therapeutic riding program in the Sav/Hilton Head area, provides the benefits of horses & riding to both the physically and the mentally disabled. We are a NARHA operating center working toward accreditation. Since we just began the program, we are looking for donated tack in good condition (safety, not aesthetics is the important factor). We are a nonprofit organization, so any tack donated will be tax-deductible. Please contact us at HeroesOnHorsebak@aol.com

You could call them heroes on horseback, a group of men, women & children conquering their fears and disabilities to sample a taste of independence. Riding horseback can help all types of people meet and overcome physical, mental or psychological barriers.

Heroes On Horseback, a nonprofit adaptive riding program, provides this experience for the disabled in our area through horseback riding lessons, trains volunteers assisting in the program & engages in other equine activities which improve the quality of life for the disabled. These services are offered without regard to race, color or creed. Individuals in a wide range of ages & disabilities can benefit from therapeutic horseback riding and other equine activities. The types of disabilities and conditions include:

Amputation

Autism

Brain injury

Cerebral palsy

Down’s syndrome

Emotional disability

Hearing impairment

Learning disabilities

Multiple sclerosis

Muscular dystrophy

Post polio

Speech impairment

Spina bifida

Spinal cord injury

Stroke

Visual impairment

Each prospective student is evaluated to ensure that the program is suitable for that individual. We are always in need of donations. Money is good, and so are the following:

Bridles, bits & reins (rainbow)

Saddles, girths, stirrups (Peacock) & leathers

Saddle pads

Grooming equipment

Clothing for our Riders

Shade tent/canopy

Beauty in donated equipment is not important, but safety, of course, is. All contributions are TAX DEDUCTIBLE.

There are many Girl Scout owned camps that have a summer riding program (these usually lease horses) or a year round facility that owns horses and equipment. These places do need tack and supplies for the day to day girl instruction, horse care, and training.

I work and volunteer for the year round facility (in Wildwood, FL) run by the Heart of Florida Girl Scout Council (office in Lakeland, FL). This facilty
services not only the local suurounding 7 counties, but also scouts from as
far away as New York State and Miami, FL. For donation please contact the
main office (1-800-321-GIRL) or the barn (1-352-748-7809).

Thank you!

Phoenix Equine Foundation, A National Heritage Foundation

We are the Phoenix Equine Foundation, A National Heritage Foundation. We are based in Fremont where we take in primarily injured & older horses &rehabilitate them to participate in a riding program with teenage girls. The girls take care of the horses under the direction of Teri Rohm. We currently have 15 horses and it is really expensive to take care of them properly. The girls raise money by putting on horse shows & we also take in tack & sale it when possible, sometimes we use it. I think that we are doing a really great job with these horses. Many are sport horses that were injured by overuse. The ones that need to be retired, are put in pasture in the Sierras under the supervision of the Chuck Mills School of Horsemanship. The kids raise money to help take care of these horses too.  Any help that we could get would be greatly appreciated.

For further information, please contact:

CC Horse Talk Association

About nine years ago, we started the CC Horse Talk Association for the area youth. What began as just a few kids and parents has grown to a group of over 32 kids and 21 sets of parents. Through determination and hard work, we have managed to take this little group to new levels of self-esteem. Many of our original kids grown up or moved away to go on to college and/or rewarding careers. Not one of our kids has gotten in trouble with the law or the community. In fact, most of our kids have become honor students since joining the group!

Through the years we have gotten the kids involved in the community through roadside trash pickups, adopt-a-grandparent, nursing home visits, plays, trail rides, horse shows, camping trips, ice skating, caroling, crafts, elderly gift giving and many other activities too numerous to count!

Recently, we have begun to involve an even larger part of our surrounding communities by starting a series of open shows and monthly mounted meetings free to the public. The response has been great!

We are a non-profit organization and any items or donations that you could supply us with would be tax deductible. We would greatly appreciated any contribution you could make and you would have the satisfaction of knowing that your item was helping keep a few kids involved in the community.

Every member of our community plays a valuable role, and we want to help them in every way possible. With the help of tack or equine donations, we can continue this positive move towards a safe and happy future for our kids.

Respectfully,

Kelleen Weaver, Awards Committee
