Check out the new Carolina Hoofprints logo above!!!  After several years of struggling to find just the right logo, finally it's here.  Many thanks for the efforts of Riby Hollar, a commercial art student at CVCC and Lori Holt, a professional graphic artist.  They have done a great job and we are delighted to show it off.

In order to support our programs and activities, CAROLINA HOOFPRINTS engages in a number of fundraising activities.  We operate on a minimal administrative budget dedicating 95% of our funds directly to our programs and client services.  With the exception of small grants dedicated to program development, we are totally dependent on our fundraising projects such as the Cowboy Cookout-2010, yard sales, horseshows, and raffles- along with community donations to support our programs.
We accept gifts and donations in any amount and are happy to provide a certificate or gift card in recognition of any gift made in honor or memorial of someone special.  These cards are a great choice when shopping for someone who has everything.  How do you put a price on happiness??? To donate to our programs, contribute to a scholarship fund or sponsor a rider, 
contact our executive director, Liz Jaynes.
Are you interested in 
volunteering your time or skillset?  We are always willing to discuss what anyone can contribute to our program and there is always plenty to do.  Volunteer possibilities range from direct work with the horses, to working at an event, minor construction/repair, working with the trail, art work, networking in the community, and numerous other things that need to be done to keep our program running smoothly and growing.


Riders on the trail


Carolina Hoofprints is completely dependent on local fundraising and individual donations to support programs and events.



Carolina HoofPrints currently contracts with Jake's Flat Farm to provide horses and facility for our therapeutic riding program.  We offer individual and group riding lessons.  We are in the process of certifying our riding instructor with NARHA and creating a program that complies with NARHA standards with the eventual goal of becoming a NARHA Premier center.

Carolina HoofPrints is a 501c3 non-profit organization whose mission is to provide therapeutic riding opportunities in the Catawba Valley area of North Carolina to individuals of all ages and abilities.

 Carolina HoofPrints was established in  2008 as a non-profit organization and achieved 501c3 status in 2009.  As a small organization, any funding is used directly in program activities to benefit clients with administrative costs being held to a minimum.  Currently, our web present is being donated as space on the Jake's Flat Farm website rather than utilizing funding to support a seperate site.
