Incorporated in 2002, SpiritHorse started with only three riders and now serves over 425 participants from ten North Texas counties including Denton, Dallas, Tarrant, Collin, Grayson, Cooke, Wise, Rockwall, Wichita and Kaufman. Twenty-seven mature, retired show ponies and horses allow us to serve children at our facility located in Corinth.
Charles Fletcher, Founder, started SpiritHorse at the retired age of 62 and guides the organization on two founding principals:
1) Love the children, and
2) Make every decision in favor of the child, not the center.
We receive referrals from Scottish Rites Hospital of Dallas, Children’s Medical Center of Dallas, Cook’s Children’s, pediatricians, neurologists, therapists, the Texas Department of Mental Health and Mental Retardation, and parents who have seen the benefits of our program.
