Why Sponsor

Approved by the IRS as a 501(c)(3)

Bridle Up Hope: The Rachel Covey Foundation is approved by the IRS as a 501 (c) (3) tax-exempt non-profit organization (tax ID number: 46-1791738), and all donations are tax deductible to the extent provided by law.


We depend entirely on the support of generous donations from sponsors.  It costs $1,200 to sponsor a girl through our program.

Mission Statement

Bridle Up Hope’s mission is to inspire hope and confidence in young women through equestrian training.


Bridle Up Hope helps young women, ages 12 to 25, who are struggling with depression, anxiety, or similar emotional or mental illnesses.

Why Sponsor

Over the three last years, Bridle Up Hope has had over 350 girls complete our program. Now in its fourth year, Bridle Up Hope continues to make a dramatic difference in the lives of many girls, and every girl has her own special story to tell.


Of those that start the program, 98% finish it.  And of those that finish, 97% of the girls and parents surveyed rate the Bridle Up Hope program as “life changing.”


At a recent graduation ceremony, where the girls were honored for completing the 13-lesson riding program, one of the girls afterwards said, “I have never accomplished anything in my whole life or been acknowledged . . . until this evening.” She wept and thanked Bridle Up Hope for helping her see her full potential.

How Your Donation Will Help

Our goal is to have 130 girls complete the program this year. Only with more funding can Bridle Up Hope accomplish this. Your donation will help young women transform their lives through our program, inspiring hope, confidence, and resilience, and allow them an opportunity to mentor other girls.


Bridle Up Hope recognizes and honors your generosity in giving back to the community and to those in need. Thank you!
