Our "Dream Big" Projects are the vision for our facility improvement that will allow us to expand our programs while better utilizing all areas of our 5 acre facility. It's not a matter of "If you build it, they will come," its really a matter of "They're here, we better build it."
In 2014 Horses Help began the search for leadership to make our Dream Big projects become a reality. Sigma Construction and DPA Architects were solicited to create the conceptual model for our master plan and in additiona a menu for builiding in phases was completed as well. The total project cost came in at 6 million dollars.
In March of 2015, the board of directors selected Chip McCray a current Board Member to construct and lead a "Vision Team" who's job it is to focus their attention on establishing the proper relationships to solicit, time, talent, in-kind materials and financing to build this Dream.

As you can see from our model, our covered arena will one of the epicenters of our campus. It will extend our ride year, add additional opportunities for education and participation.
Horses Help is leading educational opportunities for our industry in Equine Adaptive Activities and Therapies, by hosting all National Certifications for instructors, therapists and clinicians. In addition, our established collaborative partners want to bring their classroom to the barn, we need to provide additional classroom capacity, and our equine science space & strategies to our campus.
The west house will be going two stories as Horses Help will be adding a Bunkhouse for our interns from all over the nation and the world.
This area is key to our year round ability to see clients who need services. Because summer months are not suitable to use our equine partners, many clients continue to need consistent care. The remodeled indoor space will allow clients needing. PT, OT or speech therapy to continues services or transition into an aquatics rehabilitative environment.
This area will be designed with interactive sensory features like water feature, mapping, aromatic plants, impulsion area, and noodle forest. You have to see the plans on this one. It will take in all parts of the campus.
All building design elements have sustainability components attached to them. If you are interested in a teaching proposal for any of our projects, contact Executive Director, Gregg Goodman for more details at Gregg.firstname.lastname@example.org
