Sonrisas therapy horses are the backbone of our program. These animals have brought untold smiles, laughter and joy to so many. Yearly well-care, costs more than $18,000 for all the horses. Your generous donation will help alleviate cost so we can continue to offer our services Free of Charge to our riders.
Adopting a Sonrisas horse will enable you to provide for their needs for a full year. Upkeep for our horses involves new shoes, feeding, supplements, grooming, tack and veterinary expenses.
Sponsor a therapy horse for a year by donating $1,800 towards their upkeep or $150 a month. Your gift will be recognized in various ways, including web site and social media acknowledgment and a keepsake photo of your horse.
Adoption does not include riding privileges, but does enable a horse to provide weekly therapy to our riders. You are welcome to come visit your adopted horse during riding sessions. Volunteers are always needed!Thank you for considering your equine for Sonrisas Trails Therapeutic Riding. It is the policy of Sonrisas Trails to accept donations of equines from their owners for the purpose of our Therapeutic Riding Program. Equines accepted into Sonrisas Trails program must be mentally and physically healthy and sound, and they must be able to maintain a moderate work schedule. Sonrisas Trails is not a sanctuary for retired equines, nor a rescue organization, but rather a place where a special category of equine comes to fill a special need. Please review our requirements as stated below, and let us know if you have any questions. Sonrisas Trails accepts equines into our program after passing an evaluation and trial period at the Sonrisas Trails facilities.
