Project R.I.D.E.’s Hard-Working Equines

We would not be able to accomplish the magic without them: our team of experienced, gentle equines who make our program so special. Carefully screened and trained, these are amazing animals who understand the nature of our work and love to help our extra-special students.

Want to see them up close? Come for a visit! Our barn is always open to visitors during operating hours, but please call to make an appointment.

Want to help take care of them? Fill out a Project RIDE Volunteer Application and grab a manure pick! If you are interested in grooming, training, or other hands-on work with horses, you must be 14 or older and have completed our orientation and our Leader training. Please see our Outreach Coordinator for training and scheduling.

Horses Needed!

We are always looking for mature and gentle horses, ponies and mules to consider for use in our program. Please contact us if you have a suitable equine to free lease-loan to us on a revolving six-month contract. Please note that we do not generally accept outright donations of horses. Depending on our current herd and our program needs, we may be able to accept your horse. Please download our Potential horse application, print and complete it and return it to us by mail at 8840 Southside Ave. Elk Grove 95624, email, fax (916) 686-0500 or in person at our riding arena during business hours.
