About Never Say Never Foundation

Location:

906 Maple Dr, Webster, NY 14580, US

Mission Statement

We hope to provide life-enriching, horse related activities to children and teens living with disabilities, long term illness, or other serious challenges. The equine assisted activities of this program were created to connect the healing and unconditional love of horses and other animals to the humans who need them.

Description

Never Say Never Stables is the home to horses, ponies and a variety of other loving animals who bring joy, hope, and healing to many children and their families through the work of Never Say Never Foundation. It is a special place away from the reality of physical, mental and emotional challenges where children can find happiness in the presence of a special horse or other animal. Our volunteer staff assist children in riding, petting, grooming, feeding, and handling the horses. Our volunteers are special, and without them this unique program would not be possible. Never Say Never Foundation is a not-for-profit organization providing equine assisted activities and educational experiences to children of all abilities through services and programs, such as camps, educational field trips, and special events.
