JoyRide is always looking for special horses to add to the herd.  Potential horses are extensively screened to insure they possess the qualities necessary to be a therapy horse.  Therapy horses must be extremely calm, unflappable, sound and enjoy people.  We can arrange a lease situation or they may be donated to JoyRide, with a 90 day trial period.  We love and depend on our wonderful horses, so you can be sure any horse that joins our herd will receive the highest quality of care possible and lots of hugs and kisses!  To inquire about a horse donation or lease, contact Kassie, the Equine Team Leader at kcollins@joyridecenter.org.
