New at All Xena's Horses and The Xena Project
As of August 5th, 2014, The Xena Project is a recognized 501 (c ) 3 public charity.
What does this mean? It means that all donations to The Xena Project are deductible under section 170 of the Internal Revenue Code. It means The Xena Project is qualified to receive tax deductible bequests, devises, transfers or gifts under section 2055, 2106, or 2522 of the Code.
It means we have to keep the letter with this determination as part of our official records, which won’t be a challenge, because it’s going to be framed on our walls.
It means that now… now the real work of changing lives can begin. With a huge grin and determined hearts, here we go!
With gratitude for your support, enthusiasm, and prayers,
Jan and The Team at The Xena Project
You can tell a lot about a place by the way it is constructed and organized. There is an entire professional field, in fact, dedicated to helping organizations create office and business spaces that increase productivity while enhancing team work and feelings of job satisfaction. It is quite telling what organizations choose to spend money and time on, and what they don’t.
You can tell a lot about All Xena’s Horses by how we are constructed, too. If you haven’t stopped by our facility yet, here are a few signs to help guide your way when you do. We hope they make you smile, because they certainly make us laugh! Laughter is important to us – whether you learned that through our signs or while spending time here, well, we work hard to ensure you know it.
Hope your week is off to a rollicking start! Know yourself, know your horse, and always, always ride with joy.

All Xena’s Horses regularly welcomes education-focused, faith-based, and veteran groups. Thank you all for your enthusiasm during time spent here. We hope to see you again soon!
In October, Marine Corps veteran Steven Schulz visited The Xena Project.
In July 2014, we welcomed veterans from the PTSD Foundation of America and Camp Hope.
Summer 2014 included the San Jacinto Pony Club, who saddled up Xena and learned a bit about therapeutic riding and developing therapeutic riding programs from Xena Project Founder Jan Shultis. Read the press release from their visit, here. They were followed by the Tejas Pony Club, who rode in September of 2014.
Winter 2013 included visits by noble gentlemen such as the Duncavage brothers and Frank Ellis. Zachary and Luke Duncavage are helping us evaluate our program from a volunteer perspective; Zack was commissioned this year into the United States Marine Corps from the United States Naval Academy, while Luke is entering his final year at the United States Air Force Academy. Frank Ellis, a Navy veteran and board member for the Paralyzed Veterans of America, Houston Chapter, has been vital in consulting on facility access issues, and helping us build relationships in the Houston community.
