Healing Hoofbeats, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation. Specifically, the purposes for which this corporation is organized are:
a) The operation of a program of services which utilizes equine assisted therapy and hippotherapy.
b) To provide therapeutic horseback riding and driving to adults and children with physical, developmental, cognitive, and/or emotional challenges under professional supervision with a high standard of safety and management.
c) To improve the quality of life for these individuals by offering the opportunity for emotional, educational and physical growth and healing through horsemanship and competition.
d) To promote community awareness of the benefits of therapeutic horseback riding and driving and to seek good public relations and support.
Donations are crucial to fulfilling these purposes and making our program a success. These are tax-deductible and can be made in the form of money, equipment, construction materials and labor and advertising space.
Tax-deductible cash donations allow us to provide scholarships and keep the costs of our lesson and summer camp programs to a minimum, creating opportunities for those who may not otherwise have the means to participate in this type of therapy. Also, they provide for the continued education of our instructors and the training of additional instructors and volunteers, whom are the backbone of the Healing Hoofbeats program.
Donations of adaptive equipment including wheelchairs, crutches, braces, and walkers provide the means for training horses and volunteers.
Construction materials and labor help us to design and build specialized mounting blocks and wheelchair ramps, allowing our riders safe access to the horses.
Tax-deductible donations of advertising space and commercial air time allow us to make the community at large aware of the availability of this program of services.
