Stand by SPIRIT and make sure that it is ready to continue it's Mission

SPIRIT , like most of the world, shut down operations.
Help us to stay alive and be ready to continue our services when it is over.

It is quiet at the barn and it is sad. It is sad not to be able to serve at this
moment. It is sad that SPIRIT can not offer comfort, and healing energy
through interaction with horses.
It is sad, but it will pass.
The community and the whole world will need what SPIRIT and horses can
give, to heal with they powerful support those who are week, to teach life skills
youth and get them ready for life, to release peoples mind and souls from
darkness of stress, anxiety and depression which sometimes life gives to us,
in Therapeutic Riding, Equine Assisted Learning and Equine Assisted
Psychotherapy.
Our team of staff and dedicated volunteers takes care of SPIRIT Herd.
We cut off all but mandatory expenses in order for SPIRIT to survive.
But some expenses are still here and will pile up with any another week
while the world is in isolation and our operations are closed.
Do not let Corona stop SPIRIT.
SPIRIT served community for many years and will continue as soon as
it will become possible
If you believe in our Mission and if you have experience of improving
the quality of life, healing and life skills horses can bring into the life of a
child or anyone, make sure that SPIRIT will be ready to continue to be an
important source of good things for families in our area.
Be well
Thank you!
