Support Us

Our supporters have sustained HfH’s mission of providing therapeutic horseback riding to children and adults with physical, mental and emotional challenges for more than 17 years. Amidst the  health crisis and now inflation, the price of hay has skyrocketed and our hay bill is running about $500/week and our grain is $600/week. Horses for Hope needs your support throughout this trial. Our programs’ survival is vital to our community now more than ever! Our riders will need our program to heal and recover from the trauma and uncertainty of this time. Your gift in any amount is needed more than ever. Today is the day! You can donate through our Facebook Fundraiser  or thru the PayPal Giving Fund. Prefer to mail a donation? Our address is 5301 Umstead Rd., Fuquay Varina, NC 27526. Thank you for helping!

Horses for Hope is currently serving 20 special needs riders in our Seasonal Therapeutic Riding (STR) and Year Round Therapeutic Riding (YTR) programs. Our STR program offers a “Financially Free” option where the rider or their family/friends volunteer at Horses for Hope for 10 hours in lieu of the $350 cost of the program!  We are proud to say that at Horses for Hope money is not a barrier to reaping the benefits of therapeutic horseback riding!  In addition, your donations to our Scholarship Fund enable us to offer scholarships to YTR students. With approximately 180 families on our waiting list, it is obvious the need for our services is great.  Our ability to service the community does not happen without the selfless support of our sponsors, donors, and volunteers. Discover all the ways you might be able to become part of it as well.


Individual Sponsorship

Your generosity is greatly appreciated! Your financial support enables us to keep our fees low so more people can experience the benefits of therapeutic riding! As a 501(c)3 organization, all donations are tax deductible.  Numerous sponsorship opportunities are available including our scholarship fund, event sponsorship, specific project sponsorship, general donations and more.  Please contact to learn more about opportunities to support us that resonate with you.

Corporate Sponsorship

Just like individual donations, corporate sponsorships are tax deductible and come in many shapes and sizes. We value our active business community and love to support them as much as they have supported us over the years. The Horses for Hope tiered sponsorship program also carries additional benefits as you and your organization rise through the levels.  This program allows organizations to make a real impact to their community on an annual basis. Please contact us to learn more.

In-Kind Donations

Horses for Hope also appreciates in-kind donations such as horse feed, hay, first aid supplies, horses suitable for our programs, wormers, and more.

Feed a Horse, Make a Friend

Our weekly feed bill is $500!  Your generous donations help offset that cost, keeping our horses healthy and happy. In addition to general feed donations, we also have individual horse sponsorship programs available.
