COVID-19 Virus Update
In response to the widespread COVID-19 outbreak, Ride On will be temporarily closed until restrictions on public activity like “Safer at Home” are lifted. We will do all we can to ensure the safety, health and wellness of our at risk participants, volunteers, staff and the community. Only essential personnel will be onsite to care for our horses and facilities. All of us at Ride On hope that you and your family stay healthy and we wish you the best as we navigate through this difficult time. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions or concerns. Thank you and we hope to see you back at the ranch in the very near future.
A Note from our CEO Ride On has ceased all volunteer and program activities for we-don’t-know-how-long a period of time. However, we have an amazing team of equines and humans we still need to care for. We have an absolute obligation to ensure the welfare of our horses and, we are committed to keep our amazing professional staff employed on their regular schedule for as long as possible. It has taken Ride On 25 years to build this human and equine team. We have every determination to keep the progress we have made through the years.
Besides cancelling our riding lessons and therapy treatments we have also had to cancel the heart of our spring fundraising efforts – in person events which provided critical revenue to sustain us over the summer months.
The combined effect of this one act of nature has been to gut our financial operation for the next few months. We have honestly just begun to realize these impacts as we have been so busy adjusting, closing, reassuring and not hugging.
The scope of this problem is enormous and will be multiplied across the nonprofit sector. Our goal, throughout the country should be to get through this with our nonprofit and business community as intact as possible so we can hit the ground running when the emergency has passed. Your support of each other, of our nonprofits and business, and of Ride On could not be more important. Now, more than ever. Thank you! Any contribution is much appreciated, for specific ways to help, please visit our Give Page.
