Grants for Riding Stables for Kids With Disabilities
Many consider horseback riding good physical, mental and emotional therapy. (Danish horses image by jeancliclac from Fotolia.com)

Grants for therapeutic horseback riding stables serving children with disabilities are available from horse breed registries, private trusts and corporate charitable foundations. Local charities, including United Way chapters, sometimes make grants to therapeutic riding programs. In most cases, grants are only given to non-profit groups with a 501 (c) (3) designation from the IRS. Plan your proposal carefully, detailing your stable's organizational structure, goals, the project for which you seek funding and a project budget.
