Honorariums & Memorials

Pay Tribute to Show How a Beloved Person or Animal Lives On in Your Heart


An honor gift is a wonderful way to celebrate a special person or animal. A memorial gift is a beautiful testimony to the life of a beloved person or pet that has passed on.

Donations in Memory of Peggy Hintze 

Peggy loved family and spent most of her life caring for those she loved including her grandmothers, parents, in-laws, nieces, nephews and later helping with her grandchildren.  She was quiet and was often underestimated, but was not afraid to stand her ground and tell you what she thought, even if it wasn’t easy.  She was always there to listen, with a smile, a hug, a laugh and a helping hand.

She was a long time supporter of Stable Hands and a wonderful friend.

We so appreciate a donation from Ruth and Charles Johnson in her honor.

Richard was a long time believer in Stable Hands. He enjoyed visiting and attending our annual Hoofbeats Fundraiser and Fair.  His grandson Sam is a long time student and has definitely improved through his participation.

The Hintze family are our dear friends.
