Here’s how you can help…

The Bakas “Horses for Handicapped” program at the Bakas Equestrian Center continues to grow at an amazing rate.  Maintaining the equestrian center is a very expensive and time consuming task. A program such as this one cannot be made successful without help from area businesses and individuals. Donations of money, supplies, and time is critical to the ongoing success of the program and can be made through the Bakas “Horses for Handicapped, Inc.” non profit, a  501(c)3 organization as recognized by the Internal Revenue Service.

You will feel great when you make your donation, because not one penny of your donation goes to paying for staff.  100% of every donation goes directly to benefit the Bakas program, either to pay for on-going expenses or for fund raising efforts that further leverage your generous donation.

If you are in a position to help our organization, please contact us today.

Fund-raisers organized by Bakas vary from music festivals to motorcycle rallies. Our biggest event is in the fall with our annual 5K Trail Run. We set up a challenging trail course that will satisfy any runner’s urge to hit the trail. This is one event that you will not want to miss! Please visit for more information.
