We sincerely thank each and every individual, organization, and society that has contributed to the success of our therapeutic riding program through their generosity. Tax receipts will be issued for donations. Below are some options available for you to support our program, horses and riders.

Horse and Rider Sponship

To help reduce barriers and make the program more accessible to all who could benefit, VTRA subsidizes the majority of lesson costs. While we do have to charge fees for lessons, they only cover 25% of the full cost; we have to fund raise 75% of the cost for each rider. Our goal is to continue to offer a high quality program for low cost. Your support will make a difference.

Sponsors will receive recognition according to their level of support. A sponsorship package is available upon request.

Examples of Rider Costs

  • $25 is the rider’s fee for 1 group lesson; the real cost of that same lesson for 1 rider is $100
  • $50 purchases a pair of safety boots
  • $100 purchases a riding helmet

What does it costs to keep a horse?

  • $25 purchases worming medicine for 1 horse (needed 4 times a year)
  • $50 purchases feed supplements for 1 horse
  • $100 provides vet costs for annual shots
  • $200 provides shoeing costs for one horse for 6 weeks
  • $500 provides full board for 1 horse for 1 month
  • $6000 sponsors 1 horse for 1 year’s worth of expenses
