HORSE AND TACK ITEMS

SPONSORSHIP

HORSE SPONSORSHIP

Horse fees over the course of a year can add and stack up. By sponsoring a horse, you can help care for one of the horses in our program and help keep them healthy and comfortable.

SILVER CARROT SPONSORS - $4000.00  This gift will provide all the board for our horse for one year

All sponsors will receive acknowledgment with a plaque hung on the horse's stall and recognition on our website.

RIDER SPONSORSHIP

Sunrise Center tries very hard to keep our riders fees to a minimum.  It is our sincere wish to never have to turn away a rider because of his/her financial struggles but we can not achieve this goal without your sponsorship.

 

A gift of $1500.00 will provide a child or adult a full year of riding lessons.

A gift of $240.00 would a child or adult a full 6 week session

 

Each sponsor will receive a framed photo of their rider on a horse.

VOLUNTEERING

VOLUNTEERING

Our program is made possible through the assistance and dedication of our volunteers.

 

By volunteering you can learn about disabilities and  horses while making new friends.  You'll gain tremendous satisfaction from watching your riders improve physically, mentally, and emotionally.  Most of all you will be making life brighter for individuals with disabilities.

 

There are many opportunities to be part of this program including:

Side Walker:

     Side walkers walk alongside the horse and provide support to the rider, ensuring they don't fall off and helping them keep their balance. Side walkers might also help prepare a horse for a session by brushing a horse, putting saddle on, or supervising a rider during the preparation process. Side walkers are asked to be there for the length of a session, which usually lasts a half hour.

Horse Leader:

     Horse leaders are the ones walking next to the head of the horse, leading it around the arena and keeping a proper pace for the lesson. Horse Leaders might also help prepare a horse for a session by brushing a horse, putting saddle on, or supervising a rider during the preparation process. Horse Leaders are asked to be there for the length of a session, which usually lasts a half hour.

All volunteers will be given proper instruction and teaching on how to work with horses.

No previous experience is needed!

Sunrise Center North is always looking for donations and goes through Paypal, which accepts Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover Cards, no account required!

Any money you donate goes to caring for our horses, buying items to help better the program, and lower the cost for our riders with disabilities and special needs. We greatly appreciate any and all donations.
