The Freedom Farm therapy horses are well trained to meet each individualized need for those who ride with sidewalkers or those learning how to canter.

You can help support a therapy horse! If you would like to show your appreciation for our amazing equines here at Freedom Farm, consider supporting a horse!

* It costs $4000 a year to cover the expenses of each of the horses at Freedom Farm, including their feed, hay, supplements, medications, trimming/shoeing, and routine vet care.

* Our horses are senior citizens and often require a little extra care.

If you donate the full $4,000, your name will be noted on our website and in our arena as a sponsor of your chosen horse. In addition, you will get a photo of your horse and quarterly updates.
