Spring into action!
We are planted in our new farm. Please help up GROW!
The cycle of growth at the farm begins with…
– A vehicle to plow the fields
– Fields to grow the hay
– Hay to feed the horses
– Horses to support the therapy
And ends with…
– Therapy to GROW our clients!
Seed Money ALREADY raised:

Help us GROW and additional $14k
The seed funds from the MN Horse Council and the Julie Oswald Family Fund will support the purchase of a farm vehicle and pay for much needed repairs and updates to keep our farm safe, clean and productive. Your additional support means we will continue to offer our sliding fee scale to all families benefiting from therapy services at Hold Your Horses. Your support is critical water for our seeds and every dollar you donate helps people grow. Please click the button below to give. Thank you!
Improving the lives of people with disabilities through individualized equine assisted therapy.
Horses Move People. At Hold Your Horses we offer licensed therapy services that partner with the horse to move people toward their life goals. Our staff and our horses are trained team members that deliver a safe and effective therapy opportunity for people with disabilities. The movement and environment of the horse is impossible to replicate in any other therapy setting. We are researching, educating and providing the best possible therapy services for our families. Please support our work and help move lives forward.
