“It Takes a Village”
Projects and programs are funded in part by grants from donors and sponsors.
As a nonprofit 501(c3) corporation, we are dedicated to offering equine–assisted therapy to Veterans, First responders, and other victims of trauma including both children and adults.
Ways To Give
We are blessed to have some wonderful horses who require good and loving care all year long. We also welcome hay donations or sponsorships.
SPONSOR A CLIENT
Sponsor a retreat participant: $1,600
Sponsor an individual session: $150
Sponsor a group session : $250
An indoor arena will allow Warhorse Ranch to facilitate a distraction free environment during therapy sessions between the clients, horses, and treatment team. Stalls will be necessary to keep horses on hand before, after and during sessions. An indoor arena will also allow for year round sessions in all weather conditions.
Pole Barn for Hay Storage
We have lost large amounts of hay this past year due to moisture. Even though the hay has a tarp covering there is still an issue of moisture getting underneath the hay. A pole barn would eliminate this issue.
Hay Donation or Sponsorship
Each year the Warhorse herd consumes approximately 50 tons of hay. We strive to give our herd the right food for their different diets. Monetary donations for hay, or physical hay donations are always appreciated.
John Deere 5M Series Tractor
Our small 40 year old John Deere 2040 tractor has tipped more than a few times loading the 1500+ pound round bales. In the winter especially, traction and leverage are safety factors while moving hay and moving snow out of corrals. We are requesting a larger and safer tractor to feed the horses.

“My son began horse therapy at Warhorse Ranch in early 2021 and I cannot say enough good things about Valery and her team at Warhorse Ranch and their horse therapy programs.
My son was only 10 when he began horse therapy there and he struggled with numerous issues- mental health issues as well as learning disabilities. Warhorse helped him gain confidence and improved his life skills. His listening and attention span both improved and there was a significant improvement in his demeanor and positivity levels. He emerged from a dark place with a positive outlook and improved mental state.
I highly recommend Warhorse Ranch and am grateful to have such an exceptional resource available to me and my kids.”
