Donors may designate their legacy gift to one of the following endowed funds:
- Dr. Jerry H. Rudnick Herd Stewardship Fund: The Dr. Jerry H. Rudnick Herd Stewardship Fund has been created in memory of our longtime veterinarian to ensure that the horses who provide such a valuable service to the community receive the best care we can provide. Annual endowment fund distributions will be used for all costs related to the care, feeding, and continued stewardship of our horse herd.
- Rider Scholarship Fund: The Rider Scholarship Fund has been created to ensure that our programs remain affordable for all. Annual endowment fund distributions are used to provide scholarships for families that would otherwise be unable to afford this valuable alternative therapy.
