Our Impact

Jill

Therapeutic Riding Program

I love being around the horses each week and riding. My favorite thing is trotting and horse shows. I have met many good friends at horseback riding, like Emily, Becky and Elaine/ They always talk to me about things I like and tell me about the horses. When I go to school or to visist my family I tell them about my friends at horseback riding and how much fun I have riding. Mom and Dad said it has helped me to talk with others, follow directions and to get over the paralysis I had when I was young. I jsut know that when I ride I am the happiest kid in the world.

 

Jennifer

Therapeutic Riding Program

I wasn’t sure how Jennifer would react to riding a pony when she started. When she was finished I asked her if she wanted to ride again. She said, “Yes, it was great, can I ride Cheerio everyday?” I was so excited to hear this! Then I asked her if she was afraid and she said, “No Mommy, the people (volunteers) held me up so I wouldn’t fall off.” I know the main reason she wants to come back is because you make her feel safe. Thank you for taking time out of your day to help our daughter. She looks so forward to riding Jimmy and laughing with you (especially when Jimmy sneezes).

Event Sponsorship

Like all non-profit organizations, we rely heavily on successful fundraisers to sustain our operating budget. Any rise in our service fees and tuition costs must be approved by the Cleveland Metroparks to keep us at a level accessible to all who are interested in riding. We have many different groups utilizing the stables, such as The Therapeutic Riding Program and Youth Outreach Programs. Our Stable has to rely on additional sources of revenue to meet our maintenance goals.

Revenue generated from benefit events provides the necessary resources to support our Therapeutic Riding Program, Youth Outreach Programs, and the feeding, upkeep and maintenance of our horses and ponies. On behalf of the children who will benefit from your generosity, we ask that you support our upcoming Derby Benefit with a financial sponsorship of our event. Sponsorship levels are available ranging from $7,500 for the signature sponsorship to $500 for table sponsorship.

To make a sponsorship contribution, please contact Michele Vonk at dustybootsbenefit@yahoo.com or contact the office at 216-267-2525. If you would like to make a donation please print and fill out the form below and mail it to us.
