Support Giant Steps by Sponsoring a Horse

Our program would be impossible without healthy, happy horses. Each costs approximately $5,000 a year in board, feed, farrier work, and veterinary visits. We have an additional fund set aside for emergencies or extreme situations.

Your donation today will help us care for these beautiful animals who give so much of their hearts to our clients. Our program wouldn’t exist without your support, and we thank you for thinking of Giant Steps.
