We want to thank each and every one of you who supported this year’s gala whether you were a table sponsor, guest, volunteer, team member or vendor. 270 people under the sky on our farm supporting us in our mission makes us feel really special.

Thank you for believing in us, our herd, and the power of the healing on this farm.

Mark your calendars for next year’s gala on October 22, 2022. We hope to see you there!


We are excited to present the 2021 Open Your Heart Gala in-person at our 10-acre farm located in Scottsdale, Arizona! The annual gala brings leaders and community members together to support the programs for those in Arizona who need them most. Proceeds from the gala provide significant funding to aid in our mission of teaching the world to fear less and love more. We need your support to help sustain and expand this work and continue providing our community with life-changing services. As our most significant fundraiser of the year, the Open Your Heart Gala raises a significant portion of our annual operating budget and allows our team to continue empowering, inspiring, and changing lives through our therapeutic equine programs.

There are many opportunities in which you can help make this year’s Open Your Heart Gala a success. Become a sponsor, auction donor, or share this event.
