The Freedom Farm therapy horses are well trained to meet each individualized need for those that ride with sidewalkers or those learning how to canter.
You can help sponsor a therapy horse! If you would like to show your appreciation for our amazing equines here at Freedom Farm, consider sponsoring 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.
