As a 501(c)3 non-profit, 85% of ManeGait’s operating budget is funded through the generous support of our donors and community sponsors . This funding provides care for ManeGait’s 20 therapy horses, maintenance of our 14-acre facility, and equine-assisted therapy for 135 special needs riders each week.
