Hello Friends,
For the 5rd year, Sheila & Roland of Joe’s Dining are very generously supporting Listening Horse by donating 20% of all meals eaten at Joe’s Dining on Thursday, Nov. 8th to LH. PLEASE come & support Listening Horse & Joe’s Dining on Rodeo Rd. Soon, a flyer will be emailed with the hope you’ll forward it to your friends & family, post it on Facebook, websites & invite as many people as possible to come eat. The more eaters at Joe’s on the 8th, the more funds raised for Listening Horse, helping us to continue providing equine-assisted therapy (at no cost) to our community. PLEASE come & feast on the amazing, locally-sourced food at Joe’s, supporting their mission & ours!
Hope to see you at Joe’s & thank you for your ongoing support!

Listening Horse Yard Sale!


Got stuff you want to get rid of? We’d LOVE to have it! It’s time for the 7th Annual (though we skipped last year) Listening Horse Yard Sale fundraiser!! Sat. & Sun. April 14 & 15 at Rodeo de Santa Fe — first year to have a 2-day sale. 

Any item you think would make some money for Listening Horse would be greatly appreciated as a donation — with the exception of clothes. Clothes are too hard to sell, but something special, unusual or horse related would be terrific!

Please contact us if you have donations & please share this request with your friends & family. We can make arrangements for your items to be dropped off or, if helpful, we’re happy to pick things up. The more wonderful treasures we accumulate, the more money we’ll raise.  

We’ll need help with pricing all the items before the sale, sign making, set up, sale days, clean-up, etc….Any & all help would be greatly appreciated. 

In addition to donations, we may still need a place/places to store the sale items as we collect them. If you, or someone you know, happen to have a garage, room, storage available, PLEASE let us know.

All donations are tax deductible.

Thank you for your ongoing support of Listening Horse. The success of the program really comes from having such wonderful people involved.
