The time of year is upon us when giving with love is all around. This year, AHEAD With Horses Inc, a very worthy charitable cause, is in need of support, so that they may continue to do good work with physically disabled children. AHEAD With Horses Inc is California’s #1 Center for Developmental Therapeutic Vaulting.
From financial gifts to horse treats to office and veterinary supplies, donations of all types are currently needed.
If you are unable to give material support, volunteers are always welcome to learn how to participate in the instruction of the children, the grooming and training of the horses or caring for the Shadow Hills, California property, where the charity ranch is located.
AHEAD stands for AcceleratedHabilitation Education And Development. The AHEAD With Horses Inc, Program services combine the benefits of physical, occupational, speech, educational and recreational therapy. AHEAD With Horses Inc was founded in 1968 and today serves hundreds of children each year. If AHEAD With Horses Inc is going to be able to continue working with disabled children and providing all of the participants with developmental therapy, education and recreation through horses, the program needs immediate funding. Please open your heart this holiday season and do what you can to help.
I started going to the annual Fun Day at Ahead with Horses over 20 years ago when I made it my mission to do charity work that involved children. It is always so inspirational to see how the children evolve each year from their AHEAD With Horses therapy with the horses. I am always encouraging all of my friends, family, celebrities such as Dan Haggerty (Grizzly Adams) and organizations such as the Toy Bank to help support them. I will continue to support this incredibly worthwhile charity in any and every way that I can as it makes my heart smile! I hope that you will open up your heart to help them too.
AHEAD WITH HORSES MISSION IS TO:
Maximize potential of disabled/disadvantaged/special-needs children providing developmental therapy, education and recreation through horses and the environment, with measurable improvement physically, mentally, socially and/or emotionally resulting in increased self-sufficiency and the ability to lead better and more independent and productive lives capable of contributing to society. Ahead With Horses serves hundreds of individuals of all ages and disabilities throughout the greater Los Angeles area with a primary base in Shadow Hills and a mobile program site at Sullivan Canyon in Brentwood. Program services are comprehensive and combine the benefits of physical, occupational, speech, educational and recreational therapy; psychological and sociological counseling, other developmental services such as behavior management, sensorimotor services, etc. Predicated on the philosophy that everyone can learn and achieve, the emphasis is on working with those others feel lack the ability to respond. Most have not responded to traditional forms of therapy and/or education, or are not eligible for other services. AHEAD stands for Accelerated Habilitation Education And Development. We receive much more than we give. Those we are privileged to work with teach us all that we know! We depend on the validation and support of the public.
