New Hope Equine Assisted Therapy

New Hope Equine Assisted Therapy was established to provide therapeutic horseback riding services that can enhance the rider’s quality of life, both physically and mentally. New Hope is committed to serving the needs of persons with a wide variety of disabilities.
Many of these individuals have insurmountable medical bills that will continue to mount over their lifetime.  This go fund me page has been established to raise money to offset lesson cost and animal care. Each lesson is $55. If you will watch the video here  you can see how much the riders benefit from their therapy. 
Common testimonies or "wins" as we call them, include "He wasn't speaking and now he said his first words" and "...because of New Hope my child has hope and self esteem". Equine Therapy does so much more...

Builds core strength
Builds sense of self-worth, self-concept
Improves communication
Builds trust and self-efficiency
Develops socialization skills and decrease isolation
Learn impulse control and emotional management
Sets perspective
Learn their limits or boundaries.

In addition, there are a lot of cost to feed, maintain and have regular vet care for the animals as well. 

Anything you are able to give is appreciated and will be wisely allocated to help New Hope offset lessons costs and animal care.

Many corporations offer matching gifts for their employees donations. Please consider this option as well.
