CPYR Horse Sponsorship Program
The majority of our horses come from backgrounds of abuse and neglect and are at the very core of what we do here at Crystal Peaks. These equines - once broken - 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, Crystal Peaks 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.
At the Ranch, each horse fills a special role within their family unit while also serving in ministry with their unique nature and gifting. To help facilitate the best care possible, we have organized our herd into three primary groups: Training Horses, Session Horses, and Veteran Horses.
Please consider sponsoring one of our "equine counselors." By simply choosing to sponsor a horse, 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 the following:
- Countless hours one-on-one with a child and leader
- Daily engagement both physically and mentally
- Grooming, baths and carrots
- Daily hay and grain as needed
- Vitamins and supplements as needed
- Regular preventative vaccinations
- Professional farrier trimming and shoeing as needed
- Tack and equipment replacement and repair
- Contributions to the Equine Rehabilitation and Rescue Fund*
*The Equine Rehabilitation and Rescue Fund is an account that has been established to act as a medical "insurance fund" for the Ranch horses. Its secondary purpose is to assist in the funding of horse rescues.
We love staying connected with those who choose to support the ministry at the Ranch through the horse sponsorship program.
To become a sponsor, please submit our Horse Sponsorship Form. We will send you a packet of information about your horse right away, as well as quarterly updates.
