About Us

The mission of Hands & Hooves Riding, Rescue & Rehabilitation is to improve the quality of life for both people and animals in need through participation in quality, affordable therapeutic horseback riding and specialized animal services.   As a grass roots organization staffed by unpaid volunteers, 100% of the generous donations we receive go directly to the animals and people we serve.

Hands & Hooves is a 501(c)(3) non-profit agency that fosters a sense of teamwork and dedication. We rely directly on the community for supporting funds. Generous tax-deductible gifts, along with our fundraising efforts, have afforded us the ability to improve and expand our services, while keeping our class fees free of cost to our participants.
