Wish List

Since the inception of the Guide Horse Foundation in 1999 there has been an overwhelmingly favorable public response, and dozens of visually disabled people have applied for horses and are currently waiting to receive guides. 

The Guide Horse Foundation has received a huge amount of media attention and has featured on national television and many International newspapers and magazines.  This attention from the media has generated a large influx of blind applicants seeking a guide animal. 

The Guide Horse Foundation has an immediate need for specific items to help deliver free trained guide horses to our students. We plan to spend each dollar wisely and only ask for those items that provide for an immediate need.

The Guide Horse Foundation is a registered 501(c) charitable organization.

Used Motor Home - Until the Guide Horse Foundation acquires property for student housing, a used motor home in good working condition is needed to accommodate student housing during their three-week stay at the Guide Horse Foundation. After our permanent facility is established, the motor home will be used to transport the horses and their blind owners to their homes when distance allows thus saving air travel expenses. It will also serve as a mobile office for fundraising and educational events.

Airline tickets – We require funds to fly our students to the Guide Horse Foundation for training and to return them with their guides following delivery.  We can also accept donation of frequent flyer miles.

Personnel – The overwhelming response from the disabled community has created need for additional resources.  Funds are required to hire a part-time groom and caretaker for the Guide Horses and for the acquisition of an additional horse trainer.  Hiring another professional horse trainer will double our ability to deliver fully trained Guide Horses to the blind people on our waiting list.

Operational Funds -  There is an immediate need for funds for equipment, feed, vet care, transportation costs and student living expenses while attending Guide Horse training. The Guide Horse Foundation has developed a three-year plan for the establishment of the school headquarters, housing for students and trainers, and a barn and pastures for the horses. Once the permanent facility is established, funds will be needed to hire additional professional horse trainers to increase the production of trained Guide Horses.
