A Horse's Friend is growing! We need your help!!

Hi! I’m Karen Caton, a volunteer with A Horse’s Friend, and we're raising $25,000 to install a well and horse stalls at our new farm location at Rush Riverside Refuge. Although this new farm location offers great pastures, trails and riding rings for our horses to enjoy as our youth program grows, it currently doesn’t have water service or enough horse stalls. So we need to install a well for the horses to have safe, clean water and 12 horse stalls to facilitate our youth horsemanship program. Please consider donating to help with this critical need for our youth program. Any amount is greatly appreciated; however, with a gift of $250 or more, we are happy to offer a trail ride for two at our new location to recognize your generosity.

Hillside pastures lead to an extensive trail system!
