The Hoofbeat: January 2019
Your gift directly supports our scholarship program which benefits so many individuals with special needs. At Hearts, we are changing lives. It is important that we are able to offer assistance so that all individuals with special needs can have little miracles in their lives.
A Year in Photos
There's never a dull moment at Hearts! From new horses to events, selfless volunteers to Minis on the Move, 2018 was filled with energy, excitement, and a whole lot of HEART! Enjoy some of our favorite photos from 2018 below.
Need New Year's Resolution Inspiration?
Join the amazing community of volunteers at Hearts! There is no better New Year's resolution than signing up for volunteer work. Not only will you improve your own life, but you will greatly improve the lives of others.

While there are many ways to get involved at Hearts, the majority of new volunteers would like to join our lesson program. The positions available in lessons are called leaders and sidewalkers . Note: our minimum age policy for volunteers is 14. No prior horse experience is necessary – we will teach you everything you need to know!

If you are interested in getting involved but are NOT interested in helping in lessons, please contact us and we would be happy to share other volunteer opportunities we have to offer, such as facilities maintenance, admin duties, etc.

We hope to see you volunteering soon!
