I donated $200 in support of this campaign.
When you partner with ELSA, you give horses a second chance, a new life, a meaningful job.
Horses are the hub of interaction during ELSA's ranch programs serving youth and young adults diagnosed with autism, related disorders and other special needs.
Each ELSA horse has their story. Whether old and retired, neglected, injured & overused, it doesn't matter to us. What matters is that the horses of ELSA find us. You give them new jobs, new lives, new homes, new spirit when you partner with ELSA. What they give in return is priceless. ELSA horses empower children, teens and young adults with autism and other special needs and provide meaningful connections that resonate deeply. Connecting with animals is in our biology.
YOU GIVE because YOU CARE! Each horse including board, bedding, feed, horseshoes, and routine vet visits, costs almost $9,000 per horse, per year. There are now six dedicated horses on ELSA's equine staff: Freddy, Rudy, Jimmy, Oreo, Riley and Chase. We love our horses and in turn they loves their jobs. Our programs depend on our horses being healthy and good partners. You give them that opportunity because donations make it possible to carry on this labor of love.
Happy new Year! Happy trails!
