Tito's Handmade Vodka Sponsors HorseLink Challenge 2021!
$15,035 raised of $15,000 goal
100% Complete



Double your giving dollars in the Tito's fundraising challenge 2021!


Jillian, a warm and lively retired show horse and resident of HorseLink, has BIG news to share! The good people at Tito’s Handmade Vodka have made a fantastic matching donation challenge for HorseLink! (They are so awesome...)

Tito’s will MATCH donations of ANY size that you make between now and the end of the year up to $15,000!

How cool is that?


Jillian and other working retirees at HorseLink have assisted program participants to have life-changing, and as one recent participant told us, “life-saving” results through our equine-assisted learning and therapy programs.


  • 75% improvement in physical stress symptoms (e.g.: heart-racing, difficulty breathing)
  • 77% improvement in cognitive stress symptoms (e.g.: trouble concentrating, confusion, and anxiety)
  • 87% report being more aware of their feelings
  • 75% report renewed hope of improved communication
  • 91% of participants rank the program quality as excellent

Your donation will support our most immediate goals.
  • Complete the funding to cover our round pen to facilitate programming regardless of weather (the cost has gone up over 50% from the original quote due to an increase in the cost of materials).
  • Fund the emergency vet account for horses (Horses have had two major medical issues in 6 months).
  • Fund scholarships for HorseLink program participants.


Your support now is crucial!

Jillian and all of us two- and four-legged staff and volunteers at HorseLink thank YOU for your support of the life-changing work happening here! Also, we have appreication for Tito's Handmade Vodka, an Austin-born company that gives back to our community in BIG ways!
