Thank you so much for your involvement with SIRE! We truly appreciate the support you have shown for SIRE riders. Your dedication is making a difference in the lives of many within the Greater Houston Community and the surrounding counties.
This past year, donations from individuals, corporations, and foundations helped to support over 300 children and adults with special needs build life skills, gain confidence, increase mobility and cognitive skills and reach new goals. YOU made this possible!
With over 900,000 children and adults in the Greater Houston area who could benefit from SIRE, your gift can begin the ripple effect of marked improvement in their lives. Your donation to SIRE will provide the financial support necessary to continue the programs that assist and encourage our riders to overcome their current physical, social or mental challenges.
The need is great and we expect even more riders as we enter a new school year. Riders who need your help! For each rider served at SIRE we need to raise at least $2,500. These funds keep a herd of 36 horses healthy and happy, maintain riding arenas and stables, provide the special equipment that riders need to succeed, and keep the best instructors in the world at SIRE.
Please make a donation today and consider taking part in the Baker’s Dozen Program* by choosing to become a monthly sustaining supporter. As a monthly donor, not only will your 12th monthly donation be matched but you will provide an ongoing impact to all SIRE Riders throughout the year!
Thank you for your generosity,

Brandi has been riding at SIRE-Hockley for years. She had to take a short break due to medical complications, but she is back! Brandi loves riding at SIRE because growing up she was always told she couldn’t do this or she couldn’t do that because of her medical condition. Riding at SIRE gives her joy and a sense of accomplishment because she CAN ride and control a 1200 lb. animal. Brandi is currently working on core strength, balance and the horsemanship skill of trotting which ultimately helps to improve her mobility on a daily basis. With your gift, Brandi will continue to grow in her riding skills and most importantly, maintain her independence.
