Wish List Items

We always need items such as wheel borrows, hay carts, brooms, hay, horse shoes and  horse supplements. We also have dreams of updating our technology with big-ticket items such as a new computer, digital camera and video camera. We would be happy to talk with you on the phone if you have an item to donate or you would like to help us purchase one. 

Capital Projects

Farm life and animal care require tractors, trucks, barns, sheds, and fences, and maintenance and repair work are ongoing. If you would like to find out about how you can help with a capital project, please contact us.

Planned Gifts

There is a very simple way you can make a difference that will last beyond your lifetime. You may name Once Upon A Horse as a beneficiary in your will, on an insurance policy, or in an individual retirement account.
There are many other planned giving instruments available such as charitable gift annuities and charitable remainder trusts that will not only help Once Upon A Horse™, but give you tax advantages. Your financial planner can help you choose the option that is right for you. 

Sponsors play a significant role in the success of our annual Once Upon A Horse Benefit  Horse Show in the fall and other events throughout the year.  Your support helps put on an event for all ages.  The Once Upon A Horse Benefit Show has classes for all breeds to compete.  The primary goal of the show is to serve the local horse community while promoting fun, camaraderie and good sportsmanship in Southern Oregon.  We strive to educate, enrich and empower local riders by providing the valuable experience of competing in higher level OHA (Oregon Horseman's Association) approved horse shows.  Please contact us for corporate sponsorship and marketing opportunities. 

Your donation helps to keep our four legged Counselors healthy and happy.
