Mission

White Bridle incorporated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit in 2007 and began rescuing and acquiring large and miniature horses with the intention of using them in programs to serve our community.


In 2009, we launched our miniature horse program for special needs children - primarily children with autism.  This program is very effective in helping children improve their ability to function, and it serves many children who live below the poverty level.  Most of our adult volunteers are school teachers who want to make the difference in the lives of children.


In 2013, we moved the minis to a ranch owned by Mustard Seeds in Roanoke where we’ll be providing a “short session” this fall with plans for expanded sessions in 2014.


We presently have 9 miniature horses - 5 of whom drive and 3 others that are planned to start training.  Additionally, we have a small pony who’s finishing his driving training and will begin work in 2014; and we’re sending out a large horse for training this winter.


Next spring, we plan to bring in 3 additional minis; two of them have extensive driving training, and one has riding experience.

White Bridle’s mission is to serve our community through equine programs that enable people to live happier, more productive and rewarding lives. 


We achieve this mission by serving children with autism and other developmental delays in a program incorporating miniature horses.


We use the minis for cart driving and horsemanship skills and provide other therapeutic activities and games with the intention of helping children “wake up their brains” to improve their cognitive function.

White Bridle is a nonprofit corporation, so your donations are tax deductible.  We need your support to help provide our program and build a facility.


Donations may be made as a single donation or through a monthly “subscription” donation available through Paypal for those wishing to give throughout the year.


We appreciate all donations large and small.  Thank you in advance for your kind generosity.

Brief History

Event DatesHome-WBS_files/Brain%20Worx%20Flyer-1.pdf

A few words from Sheree J. Wilson, President of White Bridle:


The passing of Larry Hagman has had such an enormous effect on me, it has left me speechless and breathless.  He was my Dear Friend, my Confidant, my Mentor.  No other man will ever have as enormous impact on the entertainment world as Larry as been.  He was everything to everyone.  He was a wonderful father, a devoted husband, an extraordinary brilliant comedian, an astute business man, a philanthropist, Honorary Chairman of The White Bridle Society, a therapeutic program for children with autism, the best friend you could ask for, and the most loved "Villain" that ever set foot on this earth.  No other can fill the footprint he has left. I ask for your love, support and your prayers as we deal with the loss of such a tremendous man, my dear friend Larry Hagman.

Tribute to Larry Hagman:

On November 15, 2012 Larry Hagman made the last public appearance before his death at White Bridle Society’s Wine and Roses fundraiser at the home of Lisa Blue Baron.  Photographed with Larry are: Sheree J. Wilson (White Bridle’s President), Nikki Solomon (co-owner of Rich Hippie), and the radiant, Linda Gray.

Lisa Blue Baron (to the left) and Larry Hagman were the Title  Sponsors of White Bridle’s event; and Larry was the Honorary Chair.  In this photo, Larry presents Sheree a check from his foundation to support White Bridle’s program for children with autism.

Here are a few of our favorite photos of the evening:

Crystal and Savannah Marten with Larry Hagman.  Savannah is a 15 year old volunteer who received an award from White Bridle at this event for 4 years and over 1000 hours of service to White Bridle.

“J.R.’s Silver Treasure”

In memory of Larry Hagman, we’ve trained Silver (renamed “J.R.’s Silver Treasure) for cart driving  as a single and in a pair with Star for our therapeutic program.  Silver and Star, move in unison and are lovely together.  They’ll be in training together for another 6 months or longer before they’re ready to work as a pair for White Bridle.


Larry’s memory will live on with our program through the work that Silver provides our very special children.  We love you, Larry.
