We have a classic 1959 firetruck from Snohomish County that has been converted to a mobile BBQ grill! She will be an amazing advocate for our services, however, in her *ahem* advanced age, she needs to be better protected from the elements, so we are hoping to raise funds to purchase a steel frame RV cover to park her under on the H&H property.
Be on the lookout for her at local fundraisers and community events!
As many know, living in the Pacific Northwest can get very wet, and when it comes to horses and pastures that equals MUD! Horses in standing water and mud are subject to all sorts of diseases. To help keep our horses healthy, there is a section of property that needs to be trenched and french drains laid out. We have the drains and a gentleman lined up to dig the trench (for a minimal fee), we just need funds for gravel and to pay for the trench work before the weather gets too bad!
Part of the offering of services will be to move our heroes from groundwork and connection techniques to learning how to ride and eventually learn the complex techniques needed to navigate trail obstacle courses! This of course requires that we have an adequate amount of riding gear to fit horse and rider, as well as safety gear such as helmets and so on. Any tack, equipment, etc. that you may wish to donate, please let us know! Also, if you would like to earmark funds towards the purchase of riding helmets and other riding gear, we would love your support!
As you've probably heard by now, we are hoping to develop a trail obstacle course on the property! This requires large semi and tractor tires, lumber of various shapes and sizes, and heavy equipment to move earth and logs as well as a bunch of fine gravel to fill the tires with. Any donations you wish to make towards the planning, development and execution of this build would be amazing!

Launching a new organization requires a lot of funds to cover costs for print material, T-shirts and business cards, banners and posters, and even website development and ongoing maintenance such as you're reading right now! Any funds you can donate towards these setup costs to help us get the word out would be so graciously accepted.
If there is a specific service you wish to sponsor, please let us know! We would love to set up a scholarship or other type of fund for helping our heroes transition out of service, helping with bills, funding mental health treatment, housing and food, you name it! If anyone would like to assist with this effort or earmark funds towards this goal we would love to work together with you!
