SPONSOR A HORSE
During the COVID-19 shutdown, we are committed to feeding and caring for the horses at Camp Chestnut Ridge. The minimum average cost of care for our horses during this shutdown is around $100 per horse per month. If you are able to help us care for the horses, you can sponsor 1 horse for a month, or multiple horses, or a partial sponsorship. Every dollar you can provide helps us to be ready and prepared to re-open as soon as possible.
We will list sponsors below unless you click the box to remain anonymous on the donation page.
