We consider it a significant honor to be able to work with some of the most awesome children in Utah. As our fifth summer riding season ends, we have now hosted 490 children who have ridden 6,700 sessions.

These sessions are free for the children and their families. This enables families with little or no insurance or disposable income to enjoy the benefits of equine-based activities that enhance the children's abilities at the same time the children are having serious amounts of fun.

This is possible only because of the extreme generosity of our donors, the vast majority of whom do not have any family members or friends in the program. Because our program is volunteer-based, we are able to direct 95 percent of all donations directly to the program--primarily for feeding and care of the horses.

Thank you, donors, for your support of the children and the horses! And thank you, parents, for joining us for another fantastic summer riding season!

The Resolutilon Horse Company is a fantastic facility for working with special needs and at-risk children, pairing the care of horses with these children. We've seen some amazing turn arounds and growth through this process. The demand and requests for the opportunity to participate in this program has pushed the limits of the staff/volunteers and funding to the very limits. I'd encourage anyone with a heart for caring for these children to donate to this amazing charity and watch childrens (and their parents) lives change for the better.
