ASPIRE is very fortunate to have such wonderful sponsors through grants. We would like to give a special thank-you to the CBE Group and two anonymous donors for horse care and general programming, and the City of Waterloo for the Region 7 Conference.

We would especially like to thank ElectroBraid, who provided us with fencing for the entire pasture area. Thanks to Variety The Children’s Charity for gates/posts, a round pen, and a trailer.
