 OAK HARBOR, OH
Riders Unlimited, Inc. is a nonprofit equine assisted activities and therapies program.  We primarily provide services to individuals with disabilities four years old and older.  Currently we serve 25-30 riders every 10 weeks, utilizing 11 donated or loaned horses that could have ended up at an auction and potentially on a meat truck.

Our riders have a variety of challenges and for many, our services are the ONLY therapy they receive.

It costs a minimum of $7,000 per month to maintain our current operations.  We need donations NOW to make sure we can keep our doors open.

"Harnessing the unique qualities of the horse, RUI utilizes the strengths of each individual to promote physical, mental, and emotional well being."

Now that the government is planning on raising interest rates in 2016, Riders Unlimited needs your help more than ever. Our mortgage becomes variable in May which means we could end up paying a lot more due to the increasing interest rates. Please help us secure our future by donating today.

We have approximately 200 days until our mortgage changes from a fixed rate until a variable rate. Instead of taking our chances with all the political drama, we would prefer to pay off the mortgage. It will only take 20 people per day for the next 200 days donating $40 to make the amount. Please help us reach our goal!!

With the one $5k match, out total is actually $11,500 which is 23% of the total we want to raise. However, there have been no donations in the past month. Lets get things going again. You can donate any amount - nothing is too small. If you can't donate, please forward this to your contacts/friends.

Its almost time to start our programs up again. Hoping we are done with the extreme cold and snow. Now to get through the thawing. With luck there won't be flooding in the barn like last year. Winter are always our toughest months with no lesson income, but increase in expenses due to heat and plowing. Our horses also eat a lot more in order to maintain their body heat and weight. Please help us be secure in operating. Donate today!
