Help sponsor Yogi! 10 friends, $10!

$5,000 will pay for Yogi’s feed, hay, supplements, farrier fees, and immunizations in 2018. Yogi is our gentle giant. He improves the lives of Simple Changes participants — from 2-year-old hippotherapy clients to 90 plus-year-old senior citizens. There is no horse like Yogi.

If 50 people can ask 10 friends to donate $10 each, we can raise $5000 for Yogi. Every little bit will help us reach our goal.

Two-time winner of the Therapeutic Riding Association of Virginia’s Horse-of-the-Year, Yogi is our horse of the year every year. Let’s all work together to sponsor Yogi in 2018.

Donate online via the PayPal Giving Fund and we’ll receive 100% of the donation. Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who ran, walked, volunteered, sponsored, and/or donated to the Hippo Run for Hippotherapy! It was another huge success and we couldn’t have done it without all of you. Thank you!
