While we try to keep our riding sessions as low cost as possible, there are still families that cannot afford to pay for riding sessions. Providing a scholarship for riders allows them to experience the benefits of therapeutic riding. Scholarships can be purchased at the barn or on the website.

Help us make our fields safe and rock & rubbish free, plant a tree, and protect our 'aina.
If you have them - please bring your own work gloves, eye and ear protection, hand tools, and power tools (chain saws, weed wackers) of choice. Healing Horses Kauai has a limited supply. We will be clearing all fence lines, running hot tape, picking rubbish and rock that have come to the surface during the spring rains, and out planting propagated native trees and shrubs. (And if we get really lucky with the timing of the barges, assembling more horse-stalls.)
If you have heavy equipment, trailers, or dumpsters to loan for the day please coordinate in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org

Why are these important: to increase equine health and happiness while decreasing feed expenses, thus HHK will be able to obtain additional equines, which will permit an increase of ridership (up to 20%); to improve the comfort and safety of our medically sensitive clients (clients with MS, SCI, TBI, post-stroke, heart disease, and those taking certain medications (anxiety and depression meds) all have difficulty with thermoregulation); and to promote volunteer and instructor retention due to more comfortable working conditions for equines and staff. Off-grid office will also permit onsite record keeping and lesson planning, hence increasing job satisfaction, improved instructor retention, and increased quality and continuity of care for our clients.
Whether it's Riding Lessons, Horsemanship Camp, or our Mini Pony Outreach, HHK has something for everyone. Click below to find out more!
