The Big Ask: A Priceless Gift

Fravel – Our newest addition 

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.

Here’s a chance to meet them and to give a unique gift that can never be bought in stores.

Extra Fifty aka “Curtis” 2009 Tb by Afleet Alex

This exquisitely beautiful son of Kentucky Derby Winner Afleet Alex has already in his short

Shortly after that, Extra Fifty lost his left eye in a pasture accident.  He came back to racing, despite an ankle injury and then developed a tendon tear in a front leg. When we picked him up at Golden Gate Fields, the entire barn crew saw him off with tears in their eyes. As you can see from the photos, he’s charming everyone with his beauty, his curiosity and his willingness to learn. We have faith that once you meet this special horse, you will be in love like we are.

Phil:  

The world’s BEST pony came to us directly from the show ring.  He’s the ambassador of the barn greeting all newcomers – human and equine.  There’s no better trail horse here and no sweeter soul than his.  You just have to meet him to believe it.

Mythical Storm aka: Hermes

Hermes, the mythical Greek God  was the Olympian god of herds and flocks, travellers and hospitality, roads and trade, thievery and cunning, heralds and diplomacy, language and writing, athletic contests and gymnasiums, astronomy and astrology.

Hermes the horse is even cooler.  Carrier of dreams, deliver of giggles, bearer of twin riders – Hermes delivers the goods with all the style you would associate with one so named. He’s all that and more.

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!

 

 
Irresponsible King aka “Stan”

Oh Stan.  Once deemed “The terror of Bay Meadows” this unruly son of the great Kingmambo and whose second dam is the Eclipse Award winning Eliza (that’s really impressive to pedigree geeks) was a disaster at the track.  Plagued with injuries, illness and a bad attitude, Irresponsible King had few career options.  If you visited the barn now, you would meet our most advanced trick trained horse and one of our very best jumpers.  Love and patience have transformed this fella into a wildly friendly horse who loves to please.
