Queen of Hearts Therapeutic Riding Center, Inc’s COVID-19 Virus Update
Happy anniversary to us!
Our silver anniversary is April 4, 2020: 20 years since Queen of Hearts Therapeutic Riding Center Inc. opened its corral gates! We are temporarily closed, however, in compliance with the COVID-19 outbreak until restrictions on public activity are lifted. Only essential personnel are on-site to care for our horses and facilities.
Through the years and this temporary crisis, our organization’s mission is unchanged: to improve the quality of life in the health, safety and wellness of our at-risk participants. In fact, the strain has increased for those we serve because of the unwanted break in continuity of their lessons.
As always, we have our pledge and responsibility to share with you what we are doing in response to COVID-19: We have an absolute obligation to ensure the welfare of our therapy horses, and we are committed to keeping our dearly valued, trained professional staff employed as we adjust through this difficult period.
Without the income of our lesson fees for the unforeseeable time, we eventually will have to start dipping into our “rainy-day” fund. To forestall this, you will see we started a rapid-response emergency fund https://www.paypal.com/us/fundraiser/charity/1712497 We would be delighted if you are able to help us celebrate our silver anniversary with a little “silver” by your contribution!
We encourage you to contact us with any questions or thoughts: (951) 734-6300 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We do all we can, as best we can, for our clients, volunteers, staff and the community. All of us at Queen of Hearts hope that you and your family stay healthy, and we wish you the best as we navigate through this difficult time.
Thank you, and we hope to see you back at the ranch in the very near future.

We are dedicated
We are dedicated to providing an avenue to improve the bodies, minds and spirits of children, youth, and adults with physical and/or developmental disabilities through therapeutic horseback riding lessons and other equine activities.
The Center affords the riders opportunities for mainstream integration, normalization, and socialization through equine activities. Our students are challenged by professional instructors and trained volunteers to improve their physical health, social skills, and gain a sense of accomplishment and control.
We are committed to being an inspiration and an educational resource to the therapeutic profession – both regionally and nationally – by demonstrating that therapy can and should be both productive and fun.
