FAQ

How will Hope pay for maintenance of the facility after the capital campaign is over?

Through growth of the program we will increase revenue, continue and expand our major fundraiser (Denim and Diamonds, Run4Hope) per year that currently comprise % of our operating budget and grant money.

Is HOPE an Equine rescue operation?

No, in fact we only own one horse. Our horses come from owners that offer their equine a second lease on life through the program that is low impact and focuses on the rider.

Our Mission

HOPE Equestrian Center is a non-profit organization providing therapeutic horseback riding to special needs individuals throughout southern Oregon. HOPE has been in operation in the Rogue Valley since 1988. For many individuals with disabilities, therapeutic horseback riding allows them opportunities to accomplish things previously considered beyond their capabilities. HOPE is a way to discover a whole new world of adventure, freedom, responsibility, dignity and excitement in a safe and therapeutic setting. Most importantly HOPE provides an overwhelming sense of accomplishment for everyone involved riders, volunteers, parents and instructors.
