Standing Tall is a 501(c)3 non-profit and your donation is tax-deductible.  When you give, you help ensure Standing Tall continues to develop to keep up the current social issues and the needs of the community.  With our work in teaching life skills and interacting with horses, amazing positive changes occur.  Young people (and adults) who ordinarily shun physical and emotional closeness with other people can often accept it from a horse.


The bond between humans and horses can help build trust, respect, affection, confidence, responsibility, assertiveness, communication skills, and working as a team. This interaction allows the human to practice patience, understanding, attention, forgiveness, and unconditional acceptance—abilities they will find useful throughout their lives.  Together, we can help our community.
