Horse Sponsorship

To Sponsor a Horse – Donate Now!

Horse Sponsorship and our Wish List are two great ways to partner with us in helping people grow through Christ-centered learning with horses.

Sponsorship, depending on the level of partnership, can include everything from helping pay for basic vet, feed, and hoof care expenses for our horses, to more comprehensive care including pasture maintenance and program supplies like items of tack (saddles, bridles, etc.).

  • Quarterly Horse Care Per Horse (hoof care, vet care, feed)–$375
  • Quarterly Comprehensive Care Per Horse (horse care + program & pasture expenses)–$875
  • Yearly Horse Care Per Horse–$1500
  • Yearly Comprehensive Care Per Horse–$3500
  • The value of riding lessons for Wears Valley Ranch students–$40 each
