    Default Non-Profit for kids

    Hey Everyone,

    I'm a local Hunter/Jumper trainer who truly enjoys teaching difficult kids/troubled teens, etc. and has had the opportunity to watch some magnificent transformations from kids going down the wrong path, to quality riders/horsewoman. I am considering partnering with my BO to start a non-profit group to help more kids, and was wondering if anyone has any experience with this? I've seen a number of similar non-profits on the web, but would like to hear some personal experience or opinions on this.

    Here are a few examples of similar groups and info:
