Why you should donate:
Athelas is a 501 (3) C non-profit organization committed to helping individuals with any kind of emotional, psychological, social or physical challenge through activities with horses. Our programs impact the lives of all our riders bringing smiles to their faces as they form relationships of trust and friendship with our instructors, volunteers and most importantly with their four legged friends, our dedicated horses.
At Athelas we use older, gentler horses with kind dispositions and a true understanding of their role in our program. Unfortunately as with all of us, with age and maturity comes additional costs for supplements, medical (veterinary) care and for our horse Powder, even chiropractic care. After lessons of carrying our heavy therapeutic saddle and rider, Powder needs adjusting periodically.
With an annual budget of $100,000, we strive to maintain the costs to our family of riders as low as possible as we understand the high costs of health care that most of our riders also require. With your help, we can continue to grow and improve our programs to benefit our riders and continue to bring smiles to those beautiful faces.
