One Step at a Time


We are an all-volunteer organization. Our volunteers collectively have well over 35 years of experience and donate their time to work with the horses and our riders. However, in order for OSAT to continue to serve people with disabilities, care and maintenance of the horses is essential. We board horses at Hickory Run Farm in Newtown, PA Care is provided by volunteer teachers, student interns, community service program teenagers, riding students and their families. But, care involves more than feeding, housing and exercise. Horses need regular physical and dental care; their stalls need maintenance, professional services, such as veterinarians, blacksmiths, dentists, and medication.

Sponsor a Horse!

Our horses are an integral part of our therapeutic  program are also one of our largest expenses.To help defray this cost, you may sponsor a horse for the year or as a one-time monthly donation. Average cost for one horse per year: $2,500 ($208 per month) – this includes boarding, feeding and care. Even through retirement these expenses continue. Sponsoring is easy to do: take a moment to read and enjoy the bios of our horse family and decide which one you would like to sponsor.  Mail your check and let us know which horse you would like to sponsor.

With your support, we will be able to provide adequate and safe shelter for our porgram’s horses and the equipment used in our riding program and continue to meet the needs of our special group of riders. Our organization is registered with the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania as a non-profit so your donation is tax exempt.
