The Future Looks Bright

There are milestones in every organization that inspire celebration. 2024 marks the 50th anniversary of the founding of what we know and love today as High Hopes Therapeutic Riding.  

We invite our business community to partner for our 50th Anniversary gala for an evening of mingling, dinner, dancing, and auction offerings.
