Welcome to HorseFriends

Serving participants with a joyful and therapeutic experience through horses.

Hello HorseFriends Volunteers, Participants, and Donors,

The health and safety of our community is of utmost importance during the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19), and we pray that all of you are safe and well.

We have not started our spring session of therapeutic riding at our new location, Still Water Farm in Summerfield, NC, but we are excited about getting the program going when we get the “all clear” from state and national government officials.

In the meantime, we do have a few volunteers practicing social distancing while continuing to work with our horses on a daily basis. The horses may be on vacation from classes, but they are being ridden, groomed, and having fun playing games using natural horsemanship techniques. There is no evidence supporting the transference of the virus from horses to humans or humans to horses.

We are committed to bringing our participants and volunteers joy and strength through horses and we appreciate your continued support.

Thank you, and stay safe.

Kelly O’Day – HorseFriends Executive Director
