How to Support the Leaning Post Ranch
Sponsorships are available!
Donations can be made in the form of sponsorships of horses and/or riders. Your sponsorship gift will help us cover the cost of horse care and rider lesson fees. Individuals, families, businesses, and any group or organization is encouraged to sponsor one (or more!) of our amazing therapy horses or riders.
All donations are tax-deductible and sponsors will be thanked on our website and Facebook page, as well as at ranch events.
Sponsor a Horse!
As a non-profit organization, we depend upon your support to help us feed and maintain our hard-working “staff” of horses – the heart of our program. By sponsoring one or more horses you can help us achieve our goals and change the lives of those we serve.
You can sponsor a specific horse or let us choose one for you.
Horse sponsorships are $1,500 per year and help offset the costs associated with equine care. Our goal is to have one or more sponsors per horse.
Sponsor a Rider!
Each therapeutic riding session is $40. Most riders will be at the ranch about 40 weeks or more per year. That adds up to at least $1600 per year per rider. Many riders depend upon scholarships to be able to participate in this unique therapy. It is our heartfelt policy to not turn anyone away for financial reasons, so we rely heavily on the generosity of the community to assist us with this cost.
Rider sponsorships are $1,000 per year to help offset lesson fee costs.
If you just can’t donate a full sponsorship amount at this time, payments may be made monthly, quarterly or annually, or you may choose to donate an amount for a partial sponsorship or toward an item on our Wish List.
Tax-deductible contributions and sponsorships can be made online through
Volunteers are the heart and soul of our therapeutic riding program. They are unpaid personnel who,
under the direction of a PATH Certified Instructor, assist with the ongoing activities of the center.
Volunteers need no previous experience with horses or the disabled but must be at least 14 years old.
Every volunteer will attend our orientation and hands-on training. Program volunteers can be sidewalkers,
horse leaders, horse groomers, office help, etc. Please contact us for additional information and let us
know if you would like to volunteer. All volunteers are required to fill out the volunteer packet below.
