Do you or someone you know have a horse that may be a good fit for our programs? We are looking for horses aged 6-16 years at 15+ high hands or higher. We would prefer non-gaited horses, but may consider if the horse has a true gait. No stallions. Potential donated horses should not require any medical maintenance and be well seasoned under-saddle and on the ground. Barefoot preferred, but not required.

Please contact us directly at or call the barn 812-336-2798 ext 0

Since 2000, PALS has been “Making Strides and Changing Lives” in south central Indiana.  In 2009, PALS recognized that in order to increase the impact of our services for clients and the community, a new facility was needed. With a new facility, we would eliminate our wait list and serve more clients in need of adaptive riding. We would also be able to provide more comprehensive services like hippotherapy (occupational and physical therapy using a horse), summer camps, and expanded programs to serve populations like veterans, at-risk youth, the elderly, and others who could benefit from the PALS Mission. In 2013, the dream of a new facility became a reality when PALS moved to the current location at 7644 W. Elwren Road in Bloomington, IN. This facility already allows current program offerings to grow and services to be provided for new populations from our local community.
