The Therapeutic Equestrian Center (TEC) engages the power of horses to challenge people with special needs to build stronger minds, bodies, and spirits.



Since 2006, TEC has helped people young and old living with special needs achieve “I Did It!” moments and improve their lives. Here is a story about Allie and her "I Did It!" moment:


When Allie first arrived at TEC she didn’t have the strength to hold the reins or steer her horse.  It took all she could do to simply balance herself in the saddle.  Week after week Allie grew stronger until she improved her muscle control enough to sit up and ride her horse.


“I stood up and cheered so loud!  I couldn’t believe it!  She had such a huge smile on her face and was so proud of herself!  And I was so proud of her,” shared Allie’s mom Randi.

Please note:  Lessons have returned to the TEC barn!  However, as we continue to migrate through the coronavirus pandemic and for ongoing concerns regarding COVID, things will operate a bit differently at the barn.  We will adhere to the CDC guidelines and local, State, and Federal mandates that are in place.  Click here to learn more about our COVID Safety Measures.
