Loving Thunder Therapeutic Riding, Inc.

Donate  TODAY so NO rider is turned away due to inability to pay

Community support is the lifeblood of Loving Thunder Therapeutic Riding.  Because housing, feeding, and caring for horses is a very costly venture, we depend on community support by donations and by volunteering their time.  We are an all- volunteer organization with very few employees.  All funds go directly into the horse care and program operation.  Loving Thunder is a 501 (c)3 non profit organization and all donations are fully tax deductible.  

PLEASE CONSIDER A MONETARY DONATION so we can continue to share magical moments with the horses.
