The Revolution of Kindness Continues – be part of the Revolution
The horse is the main tool we use to connect Square Peg students to a world they are often shut out from. Autism literally means “Locked within the self.” Horses, environment, movement and humor are the keys we use to help connect autism and other special needs families so they can share love and joy together. It’s not unicorns and crystal balls – it’s neuroscience.
Please join us by sponsoring one of these glorious animals. Each Square Peg Horse has a story to tell and something special to offer our families. Each one has a personality that draws out joy and connection and empowerment from the kids in our program. Everyone deserves a place where they feel Safe, Accepted and Competent. Our horses do that every single day.
A gift of horse sponsorship is a gift to Square Peg Ranch, to the families we serve, to a loved one AND it’s tax deductible.

Autism Awakeness aka: Finn
Even though El Camino Real (Gr II) winner Autism Awareness and our Finn are not blood related, they are connected deeply. If you don’t know the story of the racehorse Autism Awareness, grab a tissue and read it. Autism Awakeness was owned and donated by our friends the Taboada Family who race horses with names that spread autism understanding to the horse racing world. According to Johnny Taboada, “Finn” is the fastest horse he ever owned. But racing luck was not with him and his career was started and stopped with minor injuries and a trailer accident. As you can see from the picture, this giant horse is extremely kind and steady and we look forward to many years together.
Success isn’t measured in numbers, but by the sound of a child laughing or reading aloud, or by the smiles on their faces after a ride around the place where Everyone Fits.
We are so grateful for our current horse sponsors – you are our angels!
