Equestrian projects can range from going to riding competitions, to offering the disabled therapeutic riding classes, to even maintaining trails. Grants are usually given to horse groups to obtain start-up financing for new horse groups, to provide existing horse groups with additional capital, or to buy new equipment for trail maintenance or construction. These grants are generally given out by local and regional councils or horse groups.
