HOPE Therapeutic Riding Center, Inc has taken great care in setting modest and affordable participant fees for our services.  It is our desire that no family is unable to participate due to financial circumstances. Thanks to community support, HOPE is able to provide program scholarships based on community service and financial need. Scholarships are full or partial providing program fee assistance. Veterans, First Responders and Kids in Care automatically qualify for FULL SCHOLARSHIP. This year we are able to offer a partial scholarship to all families who wish to participate if requested. The partial scholarship will cover half of the regular program expenses. We are able to keep our fees affordable through fundraising each year.  HOPE does not bill insurance companies or third parties.
