8th Annual Horses Help Barn Bash

This will be a fun filled night of amazing food, open bar, live music, games, mechanical bull riding, auctions, raffle, horse parade, skill contests and so much more!  Get your tickets today!  Go to

The many programs at Horses Help include Therapeutic Riding, Hippotheraphy, Equine Facilitated Learning and a Military Therapeutic Program.  Horses Help was formed in 1987 in response to family and agency requests. Originally serving only 15 riders a week in a back yard situation, Horses Help has now grown to over 100 riders per week.

     Horses Help could not do what they do without the amazing folks that volunteer at this facility every week! Volunteers are what allow our community of special needs riders to achieve their dreams while fulfilling their quest of being a part of something very special.  No matter what their talent, they can make great use of it at Horses Help! 
For more information about volunteering please contact the Volunteer Coordinator, Leah at

At Arizona Fine Arts Expo!

Horses Helps amazing programs include the Summer Enrichment Programs, Therapeutic Riding Programs,
Hippotherapy, Equine Facilitated Learning and The "Freedom Riders" a Equine Services for Heroes Program! The programs are designed to develop new participants toward independence at some point in time. There is absolutely no rush in becoming an independent rider, that is why we focus on fun!

     The "Freedom Riders" a Equine Services for Heroes program, is for military active duty and veterans.  The program offers many horse related activities for those who have served  and their families.  Throughout the year we offer military kids riding sessions, veterans and active duty riding events, horsemanship, deployed spouse activities, and date night for OEF/OFF members and their spouses.  The Freedom Riders sessions are at no cost to the participant, the program is funded by grants and donations.
