Our silent auction includes art, jewelry, crafts, clothing, horse tack/accessories, books, gift certificates and much more. Our live auction includes air travel tickets, hotel/condo stays, high item art, jewelry and clothing. Please remember us when “spring-cleaning”, or if your vacation home is available for a week.

Ranch: Many donors prefer to bring us what we need, or donate to a specific fund. Many of our projects can be seen on the “support us!” Page, we also have a “list of needs” page to refer to. Our Hay Fund is always in need of funds and if you have horse care related items (saddles, tack, grooming tools, buckets, tank heaters, tanks, feeding racks, shelter, etc that you do not need anymore, please consider donating them to us.

All In Kind donations are tax deductible at their current value. We will email/mail you a donation receipt.
