SUPPORT

Supporters like you make it possible for our team to champion equine welfare and provide prosocial equine-assisted education and therapeutic activities to as many participants as possible, no matter what their personal circumstances may be.

We invite you to join us in our charitable missions, and below are just some of the ways you can support our 501(c)(3) program through donating, sponsoring, volunteering, or attending one of our fun filled events!

If you have any questions, or would like to get involved in other ways – please do get in touch via our contact page.

Stargazey’s Equine Therapy needs your help fundraising for an Equicizer to join our therapeutic program!

This amazing piece of equipment will allow our instructors to work with our therapeutic clients in a new way. The Equicizer not only offers a new approach to building confident students, it offers a safe environment for therapeutic exercises, and provides our instructors opportunities to create alternative strategies for students’ unique therapeutic goals.

In addition to the therapeutic benefits this mechanical equine will bring to our program, it also allows us to be more inclusive of riders of all sizes and physical abilities, with the chance to provide tandem riding sessions for students who require additional support when riding.

Needless to say, this unique pony will provide countless opportunities for current and future students for years to come!

Once we reach our fundraising goal, all donors will be invited to the welcome home party for our new Equicizer, and have the opportunity to win a free riding or driving lesson at our program. They will also be invited to suggest a name for the steed, which our students will vote on at the party.

You can donate via Paypal, or contact our office for unique opportunities to get involved with this and other fundraising projects.
