The Circle of Horses was created on a shoestring in a borrowed arena, with borrowed horses and tack.
We made The Circle of Horses a community based program so that individuals with needs would benefit from our program, and it worked. Individuals still benefit from the program.
We have grown and have a venue to accommodate us rain or shine. We have wonderful volunteers that come rain or shine. We have instructors, human and equine, that come rain or shine.
We were fortunate to have a shoestring to begin our program, but as we grow, we have greater needs such as obtaining more therapeutic horses, sponsors for those horses and a scholarship fund for some of our participants.
The Circle of Horses is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation. Donors may deduct contributions under IRS Section 170. We are also qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts under Section 2055, 2106, or 2522.
We would like to thank the Redwood Coast Regional Center, Friends of Mendocino Coast Recreation and Parks, Haywire Inc, The Mendocino Community Foundation, The Mendocino Children's Fund, The Pollination Project, and all the wonderful individuals that have donated to our program.
