Sponsoring a therapy horse is a great way to not only support TTRC but also have a unique opportunity to learn about horsemanship and horse care. Shahrai is owned by Jennifer Madden who has generously allowed TTRC to use her as a lesson horse and she is the responsibility of TTRC. Her sponsorship amount of $150 a month covers a shared cost of her upkeep including hay, grain, supplements, vet care and farrier care. As Shahrai’s sponsor you would receive recognition on our website and have four hours a month to come out and be involved in every day horsekeeping duties, such as conditioning training to keep her in shape as a lesson horse, watching a farrier visit, watching a vet visit, learning about property upkeep for horse properties, care and upkeep of horse tack and learning about equine nutrition.
Shahrai is a 24 year old registered Arab who is a retired dressage horse and broodmare. She is one of the sweetest horses you could hope to meet, always gentle and always polite. Despite her small stature she is a big mover and still remembers some of her upper level dressage moves.
