Horses are special creatures and those that serve as lesson horses and therapeutic lesson horses are extra special! They are patient and forgiving. They give our students so much. We want to give them the best life we can. The care and feed required for each lesson horse costs an average of $700 per month. This includes regular veterinarian visits and proper shoeing but does not include special medications for arthritis or other ailments.

Our adopt-a-horse program is designed to offer support for the regular care of each of our special horses and to give horse lovers an opportunity to be a part of our special family. You can adopt a Great Strides Horse with a donation of $500 or more, paid in quarterly increments. Adopters will be recognized as an adopter with their name placed on the adopted horse’s stall.  We will also send you updates on your horse and of course, you are welcome to pay him a visit!  Look at our Horses section for photos and bios of each of our herd members.
