Rainbow Riders was founded by Andrea Gillies. A lover of horses and children, she recognized the magical connection between the two and was inspired to bring them together.  Today, her leadership and passion live on in a team of dedicated volunteers who continue to provide programming to approximately 120 children with disabilities annually.

Rainbow Riders is not an advocacy organization.  Every donation goes to providing equine programs to children and youth with special physical, cognitive and emotional needs.  And with more referrals than capacity, the demand for its programs has never been greater.
