NO ACT OF KINDNESS IS EVER WASTED
This #GivingTuesday, December 3rd, your donation will provide winter feed for our working horses, who are dedicated to helping humans heal.
Partnering with horses is rewarding work, but requires many resources! Feed is one of our greatest costs especially during the winter months. Horses stay warm in colder weather by consuming increased amounts in feed, most importantly hay, which helps them better generate body heat. Our herd of horses each need to consume about 67% more each winter day. From mid-October to May when temperatures drop and grass is sparse, our horses will need to eat 27,776 lbs of hay and grain. That's over 13 TONS of feed and roughly 350 bales of hay and 75 bags of grain.
Our horses helped 74 people achieve quality of life improvements in 2019 alone, and now they need your help to stay warm this winter.
Our goal is $3,400.
If your company is eligible, the impact of your gift to Ride On St. Louis may be doubled. Some companies even match gifts made by retirees and/or spouses. Please check with your company today to see if your dollars can be matched.
