Help Us

How can you help?

It takes a lot to keep our organization going and we would love to have your help! There are lots of ways you can help the STARR program continue to offer therapeutic horseback riding for children with special needs. Our organization is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit, 100% volunteer-run, and we happily accept your tax deductible donations.


Helpers are needed to assist riders, groom horses, clean tack, maintain the barn, raise funds, etc. We ALWAYS need volunteers. Riders have 3 volunteers per horse assigned during class and we average 3-4 riders per class. That means we need YOU!


An $85 donation will sponsor a child for the entire riding season, or you can sponsor a horse to help with the cost of feed, bedding, and horse care.


We are 100% staffed by volunteers, certified therapists, and instructors. Every dollar donated helps children with special needs. We love gift cards from Farm & Fleet or Rural King, are always in need of square bales of good quality grass hay, firewood, or monetary donations.

If you would like to make a donation, please make checks payable to STARR. Donations are tax deductible and receipts are available upon request.
