COVID-19 has hit non-profit organizations hard these past 20+ months, making it difficult for them to have the funds, supplies, and equipment they require to meet the needs of the animals. Becky’s Gift and Upreach Therapeutic Riding Center are both 501c3 organizations that benefit animals and people in various ways. They provide joy, peace, and possibility to the lives within their care.

The Trainer’s Loft has committed to making a difference for these organizations this holiday season. Visit our tack store and purchase an ornament off of the tree. Each ornament has monetary amounts starting at $1. We’re hoping to exceed last year’s total of $1,500 which will be used to buy items they need. Check out our sliding scale in-store to track our progress and hopefully exceed our goal. We thank you for helping us make a difference for the animals and those who care for them. Please take a moment to read a little bit about these great places.

All ornaments received may be different than what is pictured as we are constantly creating more!

 

Description

Help us help the helpers! Our giving tree this year will focus on two special non-profit organizations:

Becky’s Gift offers short term assistance to Horses in need. Becky was born April 1, 1982 and grew up in Bow, NH. At age eleven, Becky started showing horses under the tutelage of Deedee Ludlam, of Bear Brook Stables, in Allenstown. She owned a special Morgan mare named Gradell’s Delight. Becky and Daisy showed all over NH, most frequently at Deerfield Fairgrounds. They competed in Junior Exhibitor Hack and Morgan Pleasure Junior to Ride classes and were named champion many times. At UNH (University of New Hampshire), Becky found her second love, archeology, and attended dig sites in Belize, Bolivia, and Guatemala. She was awarded a full scholarship to complete her Doctorate at the University of California at Riverside, a leading school in archeology. Both Becky and Daisy passed away in 2005, Daisy in April, Becky in September. The bond between them was ever strong. Becky’s Gift was founded to commemorate Becky and Daisy’s bond, and establish her legacy. The foundation enables horse owners with short-term financial troubles to keep their animals by helping to fund hay, veterinarian bills, and farrier bills.

 

Upreach Therapeutic Riding Center is dedicated to inspiring hope, fostering independence, and improving the physical, emotional, and psychological well-being of individuals with and without disabilities by partnering with the power of a horse.
