The 6th Annual Homeless Veterans and Non-Veterans Stand Down is Friday, November 11th and Saturday, November 12th from 8am – 3pm.
Listening Horse is honored to be part of this event on both days. We’ll have a table set-up where we visit with attendees and share information about Listening Horse. Lots of services are available for the homeless over these 2 days, in addition to food (for exhibitors as well). The stand down is being held at the Rancho Viejo Church. Check out the stand-down-flyer for more info!
We’d love help at the table giving out information. Though it’s a busy weekend with the Veterans Day Parade on Friday the 11th and classes on Saturday the 12the, we’d appreciate any help you can offer for a couple of hours. Please contact me if you have any questions.
With thanks! LH
We’d like to give credit and appreciation to Cameron Veterinary Clinic for all the great care and attention they give to our horses!
Special appreciation to Dr. Andy Cameron and his colleagues at Cameron Veterinary Clinic for all the expertise, generosity and wonderful care they continue to provide to the therapy horses.

For the 3rd year, Sheila and Roland of Joe’s Dining are very generously supporting Listening Horse by donating 20% of all meals eaten at Joe’s Dining on Tuesday, Nov. 15th. Please come and feast on the amazing, locally-sourced food at Joe’s, supporting their mission and ours!
PLEASE share this flyer, forward it to your friends and family, post it on Facebook, websites and invite as may people as possible to come eat!
The more eaters at Joe’s on the 15th, the more funds raised for Listening Horse, helping us to continue providing equine-assisted therapy (at no cost) in our community.
Hope to see you at Joe’s!

On Friday, September 9th, participants from Listening Horse will be showing off their riding skills with other therapeutic riding programs. Between 9am-12pm, they’ll be riding in a show with their peers, practicing their horsemanship and earning ribbons.
We’ll be taking 3 horses, all their tack, etc. and could use some help! We’ll be grooming, saddling, tending to the horses and riders as needed and helping the fair organizer as needed. Unloading when back in Santa Fe is the final task. It’s a fun day!
We’ll be meeting at the arena at 6am and can caravan to Albuquerque. Each person needs a ticket, which is $7.00 when purchased in advance. Listening Horse will purchase the tickets for each person who wants to join us and if reimbursing the program is a hardship, we’ll cover your cost.
Please let me know by Monday, September 5th if you’d like to help out.
Feel free to email with any questions.
