Community Responsibility

Making the world a better place starts locally. As a small local business, Dark Horse strongly believes in doing our part to give back to those in need, especially to the community we work and live in. We have worked in collaboration with other individuals, businesses, and nonprofits to give back. We have served sick and disabled children, wounded veterans, and have worked in sync with multiple charities to bring awareness for the well-being of rodeo athletes and preserve cowboy culture.
