Adopt a Horse Program
Adopting one of our ponies is a great way to express your appreciation for one or more special members of our herd. You can find all of their photos and biographies in the Meet the Magic Makers section of this website. Or maybe you already have a favorite in mind.
You can adopt a Magic Maker with a contribution of $500 or more, which can be paid in quarterly increments of $125. Your donation helps pay for the hay, grain, horseshoes, supplements and veterinary care for your horse.
A plaque bearing your name will be placed outside your adopted horse’s stall and you will receive updates regarding your horse throughout the year. Adopt a horse and make a new friend today.
A memorial donation is a charitable gift made in honor of a loved one who has passed away. Tribute donations made in remembrance honor your loved one’s memory by ensuring the success of our mission to serve disabled children and adults by sharing with them the love and joy that animals can bring.
Contact us to inquire about unique memorial donation opportunities to have a stall or building named after a loved one.
