Changing lives through horses.

At Bridle Up Hope: The Rachel Covey Foundation,

our mission is to inspire hope and confidence in young women through equestrian training. We focus on young women, ages 12-25, who may lack confidence or self-worth, or who may have lost hope.

“The Perfect Storm”

Young women face increasing pressures to live up to impossible expectations: have the perfect body, be pretty, be athletic, be popular, get good grades, and be impossibly perfect. These pressures often lead to great emotional and mental challenges.
