When you can not walk, let me help you run. When you are afraid, let me teach you trust. When you feel weak, let me help you build strength. When you can't find your voice, let us speak without words. When you can not reach, let me raise you above the world. When you want to give up, let me show you how far you can go. - Kristie Kershaw

Every day, small miracles happen at Sunnyside.


Each person that comes to Sunnyside is unique with his or her own special needs. Your donations make it possible to invite all ages with a range of disabilities to participate regardless of their economic status. The therapeutic SPUR program at Sunnyside is a gift to everyone involved. The support we receive from our SPUR board, all of the dedicated volunteers, and hard working staff make it all possible.

With your help we aspire to offer state of the art equine assisted programs. As a PATH International Premier Accredited Center, we help shape the future of our industry. Only with YOUR support can SPUR continue to provide the proven benefits of therapeutic horsemanship. Your tax deductible dollars support our scholarship fund so children and adults can have the opportunity to connect with a horse regardless of financial ability.

General donations of any amount are always accepted, particularly for our scholarship fund, which provides more than $40,000 in financial aid annually for students who qualify.

Donations may also be designated for:

  • SPUR Veterans' Programs
  • Horse Fund
  • Susan Hughes Memorial Scholarship Fund
  • In Memory of...
  • In Honor of...
  • Area of greatest need

Horse Donation The SPUR program would not be what it is without our wonderful horses. Unfortunately, not all horses are suitable for therapeutic riding. The ideal therapy horse has many special characteristics. Prospective horses are required to complete a 60 day trial period prior to being accepted into the program. If you feel you have that special horse who would be perfect for our program, please call Stephanie Hunt, Stable Manager, at 732-224-1367 ext. 2#.  

The Donation of Time The gift of your time is one of the most rewarding donations you can make. You will have the opportunity to meet new people and make lasting bonds with our students and horses. Click here for more information about volunteering.
