Consider Riding

“The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.”

- Gandhi.


Consider giving today.

Your gifts help change lives everyday.



Agape serves all kinds of individuals and groups including families with special needs, at-risk children and youth, and seniors. We have programs specifically designed for schools, churches, senior communities, veterans, and community centers. Experience something unlike anything before.

Start Riding


Agape serves many people in addition to taking care of the horses and facilities. It takes a small army to keep up with it all, and we’re always looking for more volunteers. If you’re looking for somewhere to make a difference, Agape is a great place to spend some time.

It is a joy to see something that is, in fact, a clinical situation have such a magical result. The immediacy and intensity is amazing to me. I can wait a long time for that to happen with my students; the fact that it can happen so quickly is just awesome.

Lynn Baize, Teacher | Indiana School for the Blind

For some guests, we had simple victories: a brighter smile, a reason to go outside, a simple phrase expressing enjoyment. Other guests enjoyed reminiscing about horses, and the program provided a space to not only socialize with each other about the minis, but also with the minis. A couple of our guests really loved talking to the horses and could have held conversations with them for hours!

Joanna Lowe, Family Case Manager | Joy’s House

Our students loved interacting with the horses and gaining academic skills through hands-on experiences. However, we were most impressed by the enthusiastic and dedicated Agape staff and volunteers. They had a huge impact on our program and the youth we serve!
