Did you know TEC never turns away a participant regardless of their ability to pay?  Nearly 25% of TEC participants receive some form of financial assistance through TEC’s Tuition Assistance ProgramThe cost to participate in a group riding lesson is $25 per lesson, but the actual cost to TEC is $45.


As a 503(c) nonprofit organization, TEC receives no federal or state funding and relies heavily on financial and in-kind (goods and/or services) contributions to support making “I Did It!” moments happen for people young and old living with special needs.  On average 1/3 of TEC’s income is from program revenue, the remaining 2/3 comes mostly from monetary donations, grants, memorials, planned giving, and fundraising efforts.  The flipside is that managing the cost of our programs and facilities is roughly 60% of TEC’s expense budget.  This shows how crucial your support is to sustaining TEC’s program.


Are you ready to raise your hand in support of TEC?  No matter the size of your contribution, it helps to build stronger bodies, minds, and spirits of our participants, which leads to more

“I Did It!” moments such as this.


“As James began to understand that Tori (TEC horse) was there for him and she was his friend, it was amazing to see the relationship grow.  When he’s having a bad day, Tori helps him relax and be happy.” – Parent of a Rider, Elizabeth A.
