A small contribution can make a big difference!
Lucky Horse has many ways you can get involved in finding homes for our rescued equines. Whether it's your time, your horse experience, your professional connections, or your hard-earned dollars, we at Lucky Horse appreciate anything you can give and will find the best way to use those contributions. No donation of any type is too big or small, so don't hesitate to contact us if you are interested in getting involved!
Lucky Horse relies on generous people like you to get involved! Our volunteers come from all backgrounds and perform all types of valuable services. Some work directly with the horses. Some work on marketing and promotion efforts. Others plan fundraising initiatives to keep the rescue's wheels turning. It doesn't matter if you have extensive horse experience or are just interested in the plight of these equines. We have plenty of opportunities for you to donate your time to help.
Lucky Riders & Horse Handlers:
Are you an experienced rider? We have special volunteer positions open for people with extensive horse experience. Lucky Riders are advanced riders who work with an assigned Lucky Horse to keep them in work and/or further their training. In exchange, the Lucky Riders get free riding time and a new equine friend! Lucky Riders must commit to at least 3 days per week, sometimes more depending on the needs of their particular Lucky Horse.
Horse Handlers are volunteers who are approved to work with our Lucky Horses on the ground. Since many of our horses come from less than ideal situations, many of them need an experienced and patient hand when they first arrive to teach them to trust again. Because much of the horse handling is done unsupervised, it is important that all Horse Handlers be experienced and approved. If you are interested in this program, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator HERE. UPDATE NOVEMBER 2013- We are curently reorganizing our programs. Please check back soon!
Lucky Horse is dependent on generous donations from our supporters to fund the acquisition and the care of our horses.
Donations go toward the cost of feed, board, medications, and other needs of our current Lucky Horses. Even with sponsors, these costs add up quickly and are an ongoing expense for the rescue. We also accept funding for multiple kill pen pulls per year. LHER must purchase the horses, cover transportation and quarantine costs, and sometimes medical expenses. We cannot do any of this without your support!
Please mail donations via check made payable to:
Car donation is also an option to provide funding for the mission of Lucky Horse. CLICK HERE for more information on our fundraising partner Donation Line.
