HHPD Ranch has lost its facility. Bank of America took our property
right out from under us. They told us they did not care that we do 100% free horse back
riding for People with disabilities. They are heartless and cruel. We need to
raise $275,000 to get a new permanent Place and the rest of the equipment needed to re start the program. This will insure
that all the disabled will get to ride free forever, and we will never have to
do another fundraiser ever again. We will be able to do 1,700 free rides for the
disabled per month. please help us reach this goal. Please forward this to
everyone you know, tweet it, face book it, e-mail, mention it. even a $1.00
donation and then you forward this to 100 people helps. The most important thing is to pass this site along to as many people as you can!
If you would like to make an offline donation please call us at
We are a registered Colorado non profit, in good standing and will be applying for our 501- C- 3, on June 1st of 2013 or once we have raised enough funds to purchase a new property.

HHPD Ranch is Currently
the only 100% FREE Therapeutic Horse back riding facility in Colorado. We do
not charge the kids anything to ride( not even an application fee like most
places) We do not require them to have a sponsor.
The mission of this
ranch is to provide FREE Therapeutic Horse back riding to disabled children.
Therapeutic Horse back riding is very beneficial for disabled children. Horse
therapy can be extremely effective for individuals with physical, emotional,
behavioral and learning disabilities.
Horses are incredible
animals. They seem to sense when people have special needs and they try their
best to adapt to meet those needs. These gentle giants are unbelievably
understanding, compassionate and completely non-judgmental. Unless one is
deliberately brutal, they continually excuse us for our mistakes. Horses truly
give their hearts and souls for the people that love them. It is no wonder then
that horses make such wonderful “therapists.”
The horse’s movements
are smooth, and for those who are not able to walk on their own, the riding
experience can help to exercise muscles that are used in walking and for
balance. For individuals with cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis, the smooth
motion of the horse can help to improve balance, overall gross motor function,
as well as trunk, pelvic and hip motion. In fact, miracles occasionally occur!
