SPONSOR A HORSE

Here at Chestnut Ridge we are committed to feeding and caring for the horses who live here year round. Chestnut Ridge is still in the process of recovering from the COVID-19 shutdown in 2020 and could still use some assistance so that we are able to keep our program running. The minimum average cost of care for our horses 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 keep our horses happy and healthy and ready to hit the trail for lessons, parties and summer camp!

 

We will list sponsors below unless you click the box to remain anonymous on the donation page.
