Adopt a Horse Campaign
Our Adopt a Horse Campaign allows you to be a part of our therapy horses' lives through a monthly commitment. Sponsoring a horse is easy and makes a great gift - for either yourself or someone else! Select a horse you would like to sponsor and you will receive a 4x6 photo of the horse you chose, quarterly updates on the horse and your name listed beside the horse as the horses sponsor. When you sponsor one of our horses, you will help us provide feed, farrier work (hoof trimming), and medical care.
Hammer, Smoke, Don, Chochie or Bacardi can be adopted for full adoption at $100 per month or $1200 per year. You can adopt half a big horse for $50 per month or $600 per year.
Hugs, Kisses, Hershey or Star can be adopted for full adoption at $50 per month or $600 per year.
*In order to sponsor a horse on a monthly basis, choose recurring donations.
Hammer is a 20-year-old Quarter Horse who was donated by Simpson Ranching in 2018. Hammer is a retired ranching horse who used to spend his time chasing cattle and helping around the ranch. We think Hammer got his name because his trot feels like you are sitting on the back of a Hammer! He has a very sweet personality, loves to please and is so gentle with everyone he spends time with.
Smoke is a 25-year-old Quarter Horse who was donated by Simpson Ranching in 2018. Smoke is a retired ranching horse who used to spend his time chasing cattle and helping around the ranch. Smoke is so gentle with everyone he meets and loves to sniff your face. Smoke is enjoying his new life as a therapy horse and enjoys the attention he gets from our youth!
Don is a 20-year-old Quarter Horse who was donated by Simpson Ranching in 2018. Don is a retired ranching horse who used to spend his time chasing cattle and helping around the ranch. Don has a big personality and likes to untie his rope when he's tied up. If you stop brushing him when he wants to be brushed, he will pick up a brush with his teeth and pass it to you. Don can sometimes be a handful but he has found a special place in our older youths' hearts.
Chochie is a 25-year-old Thoroughbred who has lived at RiverCross Ranch for most of his life. Chochie used to chase cattle and now he loves being a therapy horse. Chochie loves to communicate with his human friends. If you don't pay attention to him, he will give you a friendly head butt. Chochie gets stressed out when he is separated from his friends but loves being with people the most!
Bacardi is a 25-year-old Thoroughbred who lives at RiverCross Ranch during his retirement. Bacardi is a retired polo horse and used to love to run! Bacardi is such a gentle soul and is so kind to all the youth and seniors. He is a sweetheart!
Hugs is a 5-year-old miniature horse who was purchased for the ROARR charity in 2017. Hugs is Kisses half-sister. Hugs loves to spend time with seniors and youth. She is a little nervous when she goes into houses and buildings but she is learning to get used to it! She is very nosy and loves to stick her nose in seniors wheelchairs and walkers to see what they have!
Kisses is a 5-year-old miniature horse who was purchased for the ROARR charity in 2017. Kisses is Hugs half-sister. Kisses is the boss of her herd and she makes sure everyone knows that when it's feeding time. Kisses loves to sniff seniors' faces and does so well going into the houses and hospices. She loves to try new things as long as she has a friend with her.
Star is a 15-year-old miniature horse from Kansas. Star's full name is Morning Star and she was a show horse for pulling carts. Star thinks she is the star of the show and definitely has some attitude. Star likes to spend time with youth and seniors but will start pawing when she loses interest and wants to move on. She still knows how to pull a cart and we are excited to get her started!
Hershey is an 8-year-old miniature horse from Kansas. Hershey's legal name is Black Beauty and he used to be a show horse for pulling carts. Hershey has an attitude and is a lot of fun to spend time with. He does so well working with youth and enjoys visiting with the seniors.
