I'm Kathy, aka "Wallowa" and you said you were interested in the therapeutic riding support thread.
I had a number of ideas there, and I thought anyone interested could just "pick one" for starters.
As an endurance rider, how about picking a therapeutic riding group nearby and dedicating your rides to them? Just scribble it on your ride number or an arm or hatband so others can ask about it?
Maybe as we talk to other SP horse folks (or other horse folks in the outside world) we can mention the thread or the ideas... imagine an entire 4-H club donating their show winnings to feed for a local therapeutic riding group, for instance? (That's also deductible if it's an enrolled 501-c3 nonprofit, by the way).
What do you think might work? No therapeutic riding activity in my local area but that doesn't mean I can't support one. (In fact, I'm training my mare to drive for now, but when she gets older, I want her to be therapy-horse capable!)
