Partnering with horse rescues in Colorado to bring abandoned or neglected horses out to our ranch each summer, so that our trained volunteers help them become safe and adoptable.
2023 is a very exciting year for SVHC as we have added a new Executive Director, Lizzie Kanetsky, and a new Ranch Manager, Morgan Offutt, both of whom have grown up in the equestrian business and have extensive equestrian program experience. We are launching an all new equestrian format of activities and programs including; rescue horse gentling and training involving coaching of volunteers in horsemanship principles and training techniques, programs for our youngest volunteers utilizing our mini horses, riding lessons for our teen through adult volunteers and training of our rescue and boarded horses in obstacle course performance relating to trail riding. We will also be offering many opportunities for partnering organizations to bring their participants to the SVHC programs to fulfill their summer program objectives.
2023 also brings an expansion of our Board of Directors with exceptional Board members with extensive experience in organizational management and fundraising. They have initiated numerous new volunteer committees focusing on events, fundraising, advertising and facilities development. Our Thrift store also continues to grow and financially contribute to support the expansion of the Horse Center operations.
