HorsePower is possible through the generous support of our community, and partners with several local organizations, such as the Castle Rock Civitan Club, the Castle Rock Kiwanis, the Castle Rock Rotary, local Boy and Girl Scout Troops, the Air Force Academy Cadets, the Douglas Country Volunteer Coalition, and many more.
HorsePower began in 1984, by Joseph Howard a local Castle Rock Civitan member, for elementary school children in the Castle Rock schools. Throughout the years, HorsePower has continued to provide therapeutic equestrian program to children and has also expanded to work with adults. HorsePower is now located at Meadowbrook Farms, located off of Garton Road just outside of Castle Rock. Meadowbrook Farms offers a beautiful country setting, with an indoor and outdoor arena, and ample land for trail rides.
