Horse donations


Many of our program horses have been donated to us, or are on a long-term lease. We need sound, safe horses who are willing to connect with humans. Because much of our time is spent in the mountains, we need horses who are able to go all day in the backcountry, cross water, be mannerly in a line of riders and calm in the trailer. As our herd ages up, we are always looking for suitable replacements for the old horses who retire into our ground-only programs. If you have or know of a suitable prospect, please contact our staff to schedule a visit. We have a 30-day trial period to see if it will be a comfortable, safe fit for both Horse Warriors™ and the prospective donation.

Melissa Mailly Scholarship Fund


Melissa was a lover of horses who believed in the power of their interactions to help change the world. Her connection with them was from the heart. On her first visit to Horse Warriors™ she connected with Nubbin, one of our finest ambassadors, and a door opened up for her to share deep and powerful insights with her family. Their time together was one of mutual appreciation, and to honor her courage and healing, we have established a scholarship fund in her memory.


Donations to this fund will enable young people to experience the healing that can come from being in the presence of horses. It allows anyone to participate, regardless of financial status, and helps open doors for creating and maintaining healthy relationships. All donations are tax deductible, and they help us “Make the World a Better Place, One Relationship at a Time.”
