A note from our founder

“At Sprout, our riders live fully because we specialize in seeing people fully. Sprout is built on the conviction that we aren’t bound by our limitations but rather we are called to achieve personal greatness and invest in one another. Our programs are designed to expand each person individually (physically, socially and emotionally) and with others and as a community by using horses as a platform and unifier for growth. But it is YOUR commitment to Sprout that gives us the ability meet this mission head on every day.

Because of your support today… tomorrow, children will climb aboard big horses who lend their size and strength. Teens will “take the reins” toward independence and leadership, equipped with confidence and compassion. And adults will reclaim their power over illness and injury, by “walking on” from limitation to freedom.”
