Ways You Can Help

At Bright Star Stables, we are a 501 (c)(3) non-profit therapeutic center, governed by a board of directors, that gives riders with disabilities a place to learn. All of our students are charged fees for their lessons, discounted to make therapeutic riding more affordable for their families. These fees cover only 30% of our operating costs. In addition, a limited number of need-based scholarships are available.

Showing some love

 In order to meet our operating budget, we rely on fundraising and special events, gifts, grants, and donations to account for the majority of our income.  Donations are vital to our success and the success of our riders!  Below you’ll find a list of sponsorship opportunities.  Areas that we need assistance with include: helping students with the cost of lessons, care for the horses, riding equipment and maintenance of the trailer and barn.  There’s also a list of horse and tack supplies that can be donated.

We are asking for your help in supporting Bright Star Stables in any way that you can.  All of our sponsors will be recognized for their generosity on our website, as well as at our facility.  We also offer advertising opportunities on our website, trailer, barn and more.

A small donation goes a long way to support our riders and horses.  We truly appreciate your assistance in helping our riders achieve their goals.
