Giving Tuesday

Dear Windrush Families and Friends,

Today is “Giving Tuesday,” a national day of giving! 

Amid the storm of Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales, we invite you to make a real difference as we kick off our STAR DRIVE to purchase winter shoes for all our horses and meet our goal of $4,000. 

Your gift today will help us to shoe our horses enabling us to continue to change lives, one stride at a time one smile at a time.

Here are just a few of this past year’s highlights: 

  • Served 2,054 people, using almost 500 volunteers, for a total of 11,690 volunteer hours.
  • Increased the therapeutic clients served by 19% from 2013 to 2014
  • Celebrated our 50th year of business
  • Partnered with Amirah to serve victims of human trafficking

This November, after you’ve given thanks, give back.  I know the children, adults and veterans with disabilities who rely on us will be incredibly grateful.

When you donate to the STAR DRIVE, you can also share a photo of the STAR in your life. All the virtual STARS will be printed and displayed on our commemorative 50th anniversary banner to be hung in the indoor arena. And be sure to join us for our Holiday Barn Party on December 17 at 6pm.  

We absolutely could not continue this unique therapy without you.

On behalf of all our staff, riders, horses, and friends, thank you for your continued support.


Amanda Carey Hogan
Executive Director

Are you a Windrush STAR?!

Our annual STAR DRIVE raises winter shoe money for our horses. We need your help.

You make donations by buying bricks and posting a picture message of the STAR in your life to support the stars of the Windrush program, our horses. Your STAR can be your dog, cat, horse, friend, neighbor, family member, or anything or anyone that means something to you.

Our goal for this campaign is to raise $4,000 to pay for winter shoes for our entire herd.
