“Our goal with this year’s campaign is to raise $35,000 or more to support Saddle Up!’s operating expenses, which includes feed and care for our 19 therapy horses, financial support for our riders, and maintenance of our 34-acre farm,” said Tricia Ward, Saddle Up!’s development associate.
“This fundraising campaign is critical in helping raise the funds we would typically bring in through in-person fundraising events and program fees we’ve had to cancel or reschedule due to the pandemic.”
To register for Pony Up!, participants should visit https://www.ponyupnashville.org/register/. Once registered, they will receive a link to their own fundraising webpage, select a Saddle Up! therapy horse or rider as their team mascot, recruit team members, and compete to raise the most funds for Saddle Up!
On top of helping Saddle Up! secure vital funding, teams and individuals will have the opportunity to earn prizes, special recognition and more.
