Therapeutic-riding horses can assist riders with disabilities by mimicking humans' natural gait to improve riders' balance, control, and muscle movement. Special Equestrians Therapeutic Riding Program partners riders with disabilities with certified riding instructors, who conduct more than 3,000 lessons each year with the organization's 11 horses. The lessons play a key role in the organization's mission to improve the physical, mental, and emotion well-being of those with disabilities.
As clients enter the Special Equestrians barn or engage in unmounted therapy work, they are greeted by Suzie, a 24-year-old shetland mare. Suzie is the organization's smallest pony, and while she is no longer able to do mounted work, she still engages in unmounted therapy and has become an ambassador for the organization. While Special Equestrians endeavors to keep lesson and events costs down for its clients, the organization struggles to cover the costs of hay, grain, and general horse care. As Suzie ages, her health problems and increasing medical expenses make caring for her financially difficult. Special Equestrians is in need of additional funding to continue to keep Suzie healthy with food, dental care, and health supplements.
Join G-Team and donate $10 to help fund care for Suzie the mare. If G-Team members raise $400, then Special Equestrians can cover the costs of medical expenses and basic care for Suzie for two months. Each additional $200 raised will fund Suzie's upkeep for another month.
