2018 is a BIG Year for AHEAD With Horses, which is a non-profit developmental therapeutic vaulting program for children with all types of disabilities in the Los Angeles area! 2018 is our 50th Anniversary! It is also the year where we will finally be moving into a property that we will own all by ourselves! (No more renting and worrying about if the lease will be ended or the price of rent will randomly go up.)
Moving into our own place means that we will be able to have the home we always dreamed about. We can put things where we want and make them special just for us. It means there will always be a home for our horses and a place for our kids to feel empowered. They will have a "Forever Home" where they can always come and feel safe and secure and experience joy.
The cost of moving our entire facility, along with all 8 horses and our cat, is a very large amount. The property we purchased is wonderful for our program because it is large and flat. Unfortunately, it does not have water or power yet. Some of our big costs are paying for permits to put water and electricity in (and paying the plumber and electrician), also creating driveways, purchasing pipe corral for our horse stalls and new larger arena, a tractor to keep the property maintained, rental trucks to move our large storage units, landscaping to put trees for shade, and much more.
All of the donations made will go directly towards creating our new facility so that all of the children will be able to benefit from our developmental therapeutic vaulting services. We THANK YOU for any donation you are able to make!!
