Sponsor a Horse
Our wonderful horses are the base for all activities at Great and Small. Annual well-care for a therapy horse costs in excess of $3,000 per year.
Sponsoring a horse provides hay, grain, supplements, bedding, veterinary care, and hoof care for a therapy horse for one year. You can support Great and Small by sponsoring a horse for one year for $3,000. Quarterly or monthly sponsorships are also available. Your gift will be acknowledged in several ways, including a plaque on the horse's stall for your year of sponsorship, a tax-deductible donation receipt, and acknowledgement on our website and in publications. Sponsors are encouraged to visit their horse, and volunteers are always welcome.
Please note: Sponsorship of a therapy horse does not confer riding privileges or legal ownership.
Contact Alexis Leonard for more information on horse sponsorship.
Horse Leases and Donation
Interested in leasing your horse? Great and Small relies on generous lessors to provide the horses used in all equine-assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) at the farm. We offer a free lease opportunity that allows you to retain ownership and incur no boarding fees while your equine serves as part of the
Great and Small Team.
In general, Great and Small is looking for horses ages 7-20 who are sound and well-schooled. Horses should be able to walk, trot, and canter on the rail demonstrating correct leads. Stellar ground manners and an unflappable temperament are key.
Fill out our online form for horse leases and donations and a staff member will contact you to discuss whether your horse could be a potential match for our program.
