2022 Buddy Derby
Buddy Derby Video
2022 has been an amazing year, thanks to our wonderful supporters. Highlights include the purchase of our land (with a mortgage!), the introduction of our Silver Saddles for seniors program, the addition of Finn, our miniature horse and Goodwill Ambassador, amazing Equine Assisted Learning programs, and the growth of our therapeutic riding program. We've been busy! We are going to ring in the New Year on a high note with our annual Buddy Derby! It's your opportunity to donate to Horse and Buddy in honor of your favorite rider, volunteer, staff member, horse, or anyone else you want to recognize! Our goal this year is $75,000. We will race our ponies down the stretch to see who can raise the most money for the program.

You can also choose to become a Horse and Buddy Hero by clicking the "Become a Hero" button, then selecting the "Make this a monthly donation" checkbox. Our recurring monthly donations help fund the critical needs of our day to day operations. It takes a village and we're so happy you're part of the Horse and Buddy community. Thank you for your time, support, and help in making a positive difference in the lives of our riders and their families.

I hope you will read the enclosed story from the parent of one of our riders, Abbey. Her mom, Becky, says, “Passion, care and concern are all expressed by each and every staff member and volunteer who joyfully greet and interact with riders, parents, and support staff. Every person is welcomed and respected for who they are and just as they are.” “What a feeling” indeed!
