Financial Support

When you make a monetary donation to TEC, you are making a difference for people young and old living with special needs.  Your financial support allows us to:


  • Offer scholarships so no rider is ever turned away for monetary reasons.

  • Provide feed, healthcare, and wellbeing

  • for our horses.

  • Stay open year-round so our riders receive consistent therapy to support muscle strength and cognitive growth.

  • Make more “I Did It!” moments such as this happen.


“Meris has blossomed at the barn, and is very different than the person she was a year ago.  This newfound confidence has helped her cope with bullying at school.” – TEC Instructor, Colleen M.


Whether you give $5 or $500, every donation helps and adds up to great strides for our riders.  Your support helps them to build stronger bodies, minds, and spirits, and inspires us to keep making “I Did It!” moment happens.  And we can’t thank you enough for your support.


There are many ways for you to support TEC financially.  Please know that as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, your donation is tax exempt as permitted by law.
