Sponsor a Horse
Sponsor a Horse or Farm Animal
Our horses come from a variety of backgrounds. These equine, some of which their stories of lost and hurting, are now doted on by children who have been through many similar circumstances. The experiences of the horses give them the ability to reach out to kids in a unique way, making them what we call "equine counselors.” For the many equines who call this place home, Hitching Post Ministries offers a safe haven, a gentle hand and a life purpose. Our training and riding methods are based on the theories of natural horsemanship, which utilize quietness and patience to communicate with horses in their own language. It is our aim to develop trusting relationships with these magnificent creatures. Please consider sponsoring one of our "equine counselors." By simply choosing a sponsorship level, you can further ensure quality care to our horses and a cost free opportunity to the children who call this their special place.
Your sponsorship will provide aid for:
• One-on-one hours with a child and leader
• Daily engagement: physically & mentally
• Grooming, baths and carrots
• Daily hay and grain
• Vitamins and supplements
• Regular preventative vaccinations
• Professional farrier trimming and shoeing
• Tack & equipment replacement & repair

Horse and Farm Animal Itemized List
These are detailed ways to give to specific areas and care for the HPM animals and their expenses. If you would like to support one horse monthly or one specific area, please be sure to mark that on your donation comment. Each of our horses have been donated to use for our Sessions with Kids who have experienced pain in their lives. Our horses and animals have unique stories and backgrounds of their own that require care to maintain their health and support a thriving life. Our animals are the foundation of our program.
