CUMBERLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) – There are several therapeutic riding programs in Maine that do wonderful work. Teaching people with mental and physical disabilities how to ride a horse builds confidence.

Habitat for Horses is a 501.c.3 nonprofit equine protection organization supported solely by donations. We have around 200 donkeys and horses under our care, plus one ornery, old mule. Most of them are here because law enforcement removed them from their previous owner. Our ability to rehabilitate and rehome them comes from the financial support of people like you. Please support us by making a donation for the horses we all serve. Click HERE to donate
