Wishlist

Beyond the supplies needed for our special equines, Driving Magic has a consistent need for supplies to support our students and volunteers. Many of these supplies may be extras you have from your home or office, toys that your children have overgrown, or rewards/gift cards that you may not need. Your donation of these items helps our budget significantly and enables us to more effectively use financial contributions toward funding additional student lessons / workshops and scholarships.
