Vision: Through providing high quality equine assisted learning programs, UpReach strives towards excellence in its field.  With the help of our equine friends, we are dedicated to enhancing quality of life for those we serve, by providing challenge, promoting independence, and celebrating success.


What's New!

The UpReach Bale-In

Please help UpReach "bale-in" the barn with hay for the winter months! Our goal is to raise $8,400.00 to purchase 1200 bales of hay to make it through the long snowy winter. Each bale costs $7.00 and feeds 1 UpReach horse for 1 day. An anonymous donor has generously agreed to match the next 143 bales of hay ($1,001.00)!!!  To DOUBLE your donation, please click here. You are also able to make a donation through the PayPal button above, calling (603) 497-2343 or by mailing check payable to UpReach with "Bale-In" written in the memo and mail to PO Box 355, Goffstown, NH 03045. Thank you!!!

***Our horses know that many of you run on coffee. So, our friends who sign up to be Fundraising Champions for the UpReach Bale-In by Monday, August 8th, will be entered for a chance to win a $20.00 gift card to Dunkin' Donuts.
