Riding High Farm is a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization and it’s programs rely on grants, fundraising events, individual and corporate donations and tuition to meet our operating needs.
The maintenance and upkeep of the horses is expensive. Riding High Farm spends almost $100,000 annually feeding and caring for the horses. In addition to the ongoing hay, feed, vet and farrier services, RHF staff and volunteers work hard to maintain and upgrade the barn and grounds to ensure the safety and well being of the clients, staff and horses. RHF strives to ensure that it provides up to date riding equipment and supplies for the program. The cost for this equipment can also be expensive. RHF receives NO government funding. More than half of the annual budget is met through the generosity of donors like yourselves.
