The NWNHC Family Fund was founded to help families in need experience the healing power of the horse without worrying about the costs. The fund supports young people and families with equestrian scholarships and subsidizes lodging, meal and professional services fees for family support programs, equine-assisted therapy and family team-building events. It relies on your love and generosity.

Military Family Programs
There are many military programs to help warriors transition from the battlefront to the homefront. Through Warrior Family Retreats, families of military personnel who have been deployed overseas can get away to the country for a weekend retreat and family healing time. Husbands and wives work with certified instructors and therapists to learn new horse and life skills and reconnect as loving partners. Children get the opportunity to share their deployment experiences with family therapists and enjoy stress-free, fun time with their parents. The program helps families address the transition challenges experienced by a soldier returning from a long separation and the realities of war.
Children’s Equestrian Scholarships
Parents facing the economic challenges of lost employment, single parenting, and other hardships want their child to have the same opportunities as other kids. They also want to feel that, despite their current challenges, they can provide and support a happy childhood.
Children wishing to participate in horsemanship and riding lessons, summer horse camps and special equestrian clinics and workshops can apply to receive partial or full scholarships to offset expenses.
