Our 15th year in the books!!!!

WOW!!!  Hard to believe we just finished our 15th year!!!!  In this time we have served over 275 riders from the 6 surrounding tristate counties, had over 600 volunteers, have been blessed over the years with 19 different horses and a very sweet little pony named Noodles who has been with us from day one.  We started with 2 instructors and now have 5 nationally certified therapeutic horseback riding instructors.

We have had the privilege of witnessing so many miracles!  Being apart of this organization is such a blessing!!   Even our volunteers walk away a different person.      Come be apart of  something that truly is changing lives in so many different ways!!   Check out our links on how to be a volunteer, rider and even financially sponsor a horse, rider , or instructor.  We even welcome you to come serve on a committee.

To the New Year!  We have big hopes and plans for 2017!!!!!   We have out grown where we are currently leasing and are in search of 30 acres to call our own.   This will provide our riders more of a consistent service and not have to be at the mercy of the weather.  Having an indoor arena will also give us the opportunity to implement new programs, such as, Silver Saddles for senior citizens to come out and increase their balance, veterans suffering from PTSD, girls/boys scouts to earn their horse badge, and work with school corporations.  The ideas honestly are endless.    So if  you know of some land or a facility please email us at stirnuphope@psci.net.

God Bless!!  And THANK YOU for taking the time to check us out!!!!!!!!!
