Donation Program Update

Purchase with a Purpose program at work

The magic of equine-assisted therapies and activities enhance the lives of children and adults with physical, emotional and/or intellectual challenges. 

We would like to share part of the message we received from Three Gaits, Inc. in response to the donation: A parent of a rider says “Riding at Three Gaits has given my daughter a level of confidence that we hadn’t seen prior to starting therapeutic riding. It is always the bright spot in our week where we can just be, and not feel like outsiders. It gives my daughter something to talk about with others, where we can focus on abilities & strengths. It’s good for her physical strength, for practicing executive function skills, for improving her balance, her bi-lateral coordination, and all the things that are scrutinized continuously from a medical perspective. And we’re always impressed with those outcomes. But, most of all, we love Three Gaits for being a safe, inclusive, and fun place that we’re excited to be a part of every single time we have the opportunity.”

We have heard countless testimonials such as this and have seen firsthand the power the horse has to transform lives. That is why our Purchase with a Purpose program is our corporate mission. But that mission cannot be fulfilled without the help of our customers!

So thank YOU for your purchases.
