 How You Can Help

Volunteering at BTR

Donations & Sponsorships


Who can help

    • Anyone over the age of 14 with an interest in being of service
    • Those with no prior horse knowledge (but it can be very useful!)

 Help is sincerely appreciated in

various capacities

    • Sidewalkers (friendly horse-loving people who walk next to the rider)
    • Horse leaders (with a little training you can become an expert wrangler)
    • Behind-the-scenes helpers (fundraising, printing, special-event coordinator)
    • Donate your therapeutic services (for OT, PT, and Speech professionals)
    • Sponsor a horse or child

When we think about all the things we do,
there isn't a thought that doesn't include you.
Marking our days with a special plus,
knowing our sponsors are there for us.
We may not walk, or jog, or speak,
but our time at Bitterroot Therapeutic,
is the highlight of our week.
With your support our world expands,
you let us know that we 'really can'.
We can reach goals, we can excel,
we can contribute ... and do it well!
You give us pride and reason to hope,
and with our thanks we write this note.
Thank you for your time and care,
as we strive each day knowing you're there.

Mike was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at birth. He is now 28 years old and through the support of his much appreciated sponsor, the Dennis & Phyllis Washington Foundation, he has been riding in the BTR program since 2002. Washington Foundation's generosity enables Mike to enjoy independence. For someone who needs physical help in every other area of his life, riding continues to be Mike's passion. ~ 2016


Abbie's "never quit" attitude comes charging through when she rides. Born deaf with spondylothesis of her back and athotoid cerebral palsy, she has a hard time controlling her movements. Riding not only makes her back more comfortable, it improves her coordination and allows her competitive spirit to shine while competing in Valley Olympians. With the benefit of her sponsor, Rapp Family Foundation, Abbie will continue to bring home blue ribbons.
