Mephibosheth Farm is nationally recognized by the Professional Association
of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH, Intl).  
Our goal is to share the benefits of horseback riding with those who
experience physical, psychological or developmental disabilities.  
Horseback riding has been shown to improve balance, coordination and
strength.  In addition to these physical benefits participants also
experience increased self-confidence, social awareness and emotional
well-being.

2017 Walk-a-thon

Angelic Riders' 14th Annual Walk-a-thon

DONATE TO THE WALK-A-THON HERE

Participant Information

You're invited to Angelic Riders' 14th Annual Walk-a-thon! The Walk-a-thon is our nonprofit's BIGGEST fundraiser of the year and covers many of the farm's expenses.

Did you know that we never turn down those who are truly in need? That means we often end up needing help to cover our expenses. This year is no different, with around 40% of our riders on sponsorship/fundraiser money. 

This year we will walk around the scenic farm through pastures and trails. The walk is relatively easy but there is some uneven terrain that may be difficult to navigate for some wheelchairs and strollers, families are also welcome to hang out on the farm during the walk. After we complete the walk we will give out awards for our riders and volunteers as well as the team and individual who raised the most money. Entertainment will be provided and we will be serving delicious BBQ from Ron Steele of Ron Steele Plumbing, and spend time getting to know each other!

Date: October 7th 2017

Photos For The Farm

photos for the farm

This year we are happy to announce that local photographers 'Captured by Collier' have volunteered to photograph the walk. They will also be providing an additional way to donate to Angelic Riders by purchasing professional photos of yourself, your friends or family by Captured by Collier. There are two options outlined below.

Option 1: Portraits with a Hero Horse

We see our horses as heroes since they are literally the backbone of our program. During the walk-a-thon we will have a few horses on standby to give you the opportunity to have a portrait taken with one or two of our hero horses. One hundred percent of the proceeds from these photos will go back to the farm. 

  • $10 - One person and one horse
  • $20 - 1-6 people and two horses

Option 2: Photo Package

For one hour or half hour photo packages purchased between now and the end of the year, you can mention 'Angelic Riders' and Captured by Collier will donate $50 from a one hour session or $40 from a half hour session directly to the Farm. This is the perfect opportunity to purchase a professional photoshoot for you, your family, your friends, or your pets that will create lasting memories, all while helping us continue to provide therapy and recreation for the differently abled in our community. We will have a signup sheet at the walk if you would like to sign up, or you can contact Captured by Collier via their website to schedule your photoshoot.
