Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Our goal is to create a relaxing and supportive environment where people of differing abilities can interact with equines and other farm animals to improve their lives.

Our philosophy is that interacting with Nature and Animals serves to energize, focus and improve every individual's life to some extent. We are here to teach everyone the value of the healing qualities that a farm and horses can provide. People with mental, physical and psychological problems are all welcome and will benefit from our therapies. We are actively working to shape our community's services, resources, and attitudes.

Our experience is that this type of community development and involvement allows for a much richer web of community services and supports. More can be accomplished than is otherwise possible. With such involvement, the community becomes a place where individuals can feel they belong, where their voices are heard, and where their efforts make a significant contribution to the community.

Lessons will be tailored to the individual after an evaluation by the Path Intl. Certified Instructor.

Future plans include Therapies involving working with other farm animals and gardening.

We reach out to the community through fundraisers and word of mouth. We hold farm activity days encouraging the community to come out and spend time in nature and learn about our programs.

Our volunteers spend time with our special needs clients and learn how to interact with persons with special needs without prejudice. These new attitudes are spread throughout our community by our volunteers and clients resulting in a more inclusive and less judgmental society.

Our company brings a unique combination of strengths to our business, including a Path International Certified Riding Instructor with a degree in psychology.

Our Board of Directors, community volunteers and horses are the key reasons we are capable of accomplishing our goals.

Without our horses and our volunteers, our program could not exist.

Our board members are committed to expanding our presence in the community and growing our mission.

We operate on 10 acres, have two small arenas for lessons, and four horses uniquely suited to equine therapy.

Our board sets annual goals to accomplish during the year. Goals are reviewed quarterly. If goals are not on track for completion, strategies are revised or developed to get things back on track. All goals are written and crossed off when completed. A timeline of accomplishments is kept to show our ongoing progress.

So far we have accomplished the following: We have incorporated in the State of Texas, received our 501 (c) (3) designation from the IRS, developed our website, recruited and trained ten volunteers, we have clients having weekly lessons. We applied for and received a community grants, and held successful fundraisers.

We still need to raise funds to cover our arena so we can operate during inclement weather.

We are still working on expanding our community outreach to portions.

We are still developing additional programs to help accomplish our mission and reach our goals.
