March 2020 This has been the first winter we have not done classes since HorseBuds opened in 2013. Volunteers have been still helping with the horses almost weekly between the storms. With the latest world happenings we are now closed for a bit until things settle down. If you are interested in spring, summer, and fall classes or volunteering please find 2020 paperwork on our website. Stay safe. See you soon.

Sincerely,

Deb Michael, Executive Director

HorseBuds TRC was the recipient of an Autism Speaks Grant in December of 2014 and is partnering with Sprouts Neighborhood Market in Greeley, CO to spread Autism Awareness to our community. At our riding center, HorseBuddies Family Play Dates is a program using the Horse Boy Method TM that was specifically developed ten years ago by Rupert Issacson to help his son gain higher function within the autism spectrum.
