Sponsor a Horse

By becoming a sponsor, you can direct your donation dollars towards the care and feeding of a specific companion horse of your choosing. As it costs around $500 per month to care for one horse on our property, this program asks for a minimum donation of $100 per month. Partner with other community members to fully sponsor a horse, or give the $500/month on your own! Donors who give at least $100 per month for 1 full year (or $1200 at one time) may visit their special horse each month and work with a CHR representative to learn how to properly care for their new companion. Choose your special horse TODAY and become a part of this rewarding experience.

At 21 years old this molly mule is still living her life to the fullest. No longer able to carry adult riders, Agnes has retired to giving small or light-weight children calm and relaxing pony rides. It’s clear that she readily accepts human affection; out in her pasture, she will eagerly approach any human visitors. She is a beautiful, gentle mule with a lot to offer. Until she finds the perfect home, your sponsorship will help us provide hay, grain, vet and farrier care for this amazing girl.

Originally born at CHR 10 long years ago, Bella’s mother was part of a large impound of Arabians. The group of horses, including momma Summer, were severely underweight. Luckily, Bella was born with no complications and grew into the beautiful mare you see today. Quickly adopted out as a youngster, Bella had the misfortune of being struck by lightning in 2012. A survivor at heart, this friendly and personable horse then began to develop metabolic issues coupled with chronic founder. Although the large green pasture that her loving home provided to her would be paradise for most horses, miss Bella was struggling to survive, let alone thrive. Here at CHR we work hard to ensure that our horses are forever safe, and when Bella’s distressed owner reached out to us we were honored to give this amazing horse yet another chance at a good life. Bella is currently under evaluation with our vet, and we will have more information about this incredible horse very soon.

Blue is a real beauty who just wants to be loved. Due to a few behavioral issues, we currently feel it is in Blue’s best interest to remain a non-rideable, companion-only horse at this time. With her level of class, beauty, and movement, it’s hard not to fall in love with this sweet and stunning mare. She enjoys being walked and brushed, and is always eager for attention. Happy, healthy, and physically sound, Blue will continue her mental rehabilitation as time goes on. If you’d like to support this amazing girl during this process, she will be eager and grateful for your help.

With legs for days, Charlee is a sweet mare who wears a CSU brand on her shoulder. She spent several years in their program as a recipient mare, and she is now lucky enough to enjoy a wonderful retirement at CHR. Initially, we entered Charlee into our training evaluation program to determine her eligibility and skills under saddle. It was quickly clear that although she has a heart of gold and aims to please, her body just can’t hold up to that type of exercise load anymore. Charlee requires front shoes to stay pasture sound, and she has also been diagnosed with Equine Cushings Syndrome (a condition easily treatable with daily medication). She is perfectly happy to serve as a companion to other horses, and she bonds strongly with her pasture pals. Your sponsorship helps us provide the specialized shoeing and medication that Charlee needs to live a happy retired life at CHR – that is, until her new home comes along!

Louie is a kind and very sensitive registered gelding. During his initial training evaluation we discovered that Louie has experienced some very harsh training techniques in the past. With his age and behavioral issues considered, we chose to give Louie the gift of retirement from a life of riding. This playful boy is an outstanding companion to the other horses in his pasture, and he will make a lucky adopter very happy someday soon. Your sponsorship helps us provide Louie with routine vaccinations, dental, and farrier care to keep him in tip top shape (not to mention hay and grain)!

Registered AQHA, our red-headed Shannon is a stellar companion to other horses. In our mares’ pasture, she is fairly dominant but dislikes drama. If she has a point to make, it will be subtle in nature; with this attitude she has earned a good deal of respect from her pasture-mates. Due to previous founder issues and very soft, thin soles, Shannon is currently not rideable. We have tried quite a few types of corrective shoes for her over the years, all of which have maintained her pasture soundness but no more. We also have her on a daily dose of medication (which she eats well in grain) to help her stay comfortable. With the help of your sponsorship, we are able to provide Shannon with the ongoing specialized care that she requires.

This gorgeous, easy-going girl adores human attention. A kind and friendly mare, we initially tried Summer out in our riding and training program. During her evaluation it quickly became apparent that age has caught up with her. She has some significant old scarring/tightness in her hamstring muscles, as well as some minor arthritis in her joints. Ongoing vet work has determined that Summer’s days of riding are behind her, and that she should now live as a companion horse. She happens to be great at this new job! Summer was diagnosed with Cushings Disease in 2016, as she arrived to us with a long hair coat that was unwilling to properly shed out (the diagnosis was confirmed with a blood test). She was prescribed a dosage of Pergolide, which she happily eats in her grain every day to treat this issue. Your sponsorship helps us cover the cost of this expensive medication, as well as all of Summer’s routine vet and farrier care to keep her happy and healthy.
