Want to do more? Sponsor a program horse!

Horse sponsorship is a way to make a huge impact. Not only will you be giving life sustaining support and care to a program horse, but each horse is capable of treating up to five veterans per month! As you may imagine, caring for horses can be a very costly endeavor. When in perfect health, each of our wonderful program horses costs approximately $4,000 per year to care for. This cost includes grain, hay, farrier (hoof care), and routine veterinary costs (vaccinations and de-worming). In addition to the karmic benefits this kind of giving can offer, our horse sponsors will receive a photo and description of your horse, a Horses Joining Forces t-shirt or hat, and your name will appear on our website, Facebook page, and your horses’ stall card for the duration of the sponsorship. Our amazing sponsors are welcome and encouraged to visit their horses at the ranch, too!
