Locust Lane Riding Center

Sponsor a Horse

Champion the Herd

The horses of Locust Lane are at the very heart of the work we do.  Each horse on the farm plays an important role in our programs.

Some of our horses have been rescued from slaughter, some have been given to our care as the previous owners were no longer able to afford them, some have been sent to us for retirement and given a new purpose in life.

The cost of feed, hay, and veterinary care can be overwhelming.

Please consider making a tax-deductible donation to help ensure that our horses receive the best care possible.

Give a sponsorship to someone special for a holiday, birthday or in memory of a good friend (human or equine).

Sponsors can be individuals, families, school classes, or organizations. Upon sponsorship, you will receive a digital photo of your horse and information about their personality and needs. You may also schedule an appointment to visit your sponsored horse at the farm.
