Ways To Help
The Therapeutic Riding Center is a program of Tri-State Exhibition Center, a registered 501c(3) corporation. As a non-profit program helping individuals of all ages with physical, mental, and emotional challenges, we depend on the generosity of donors, corporate partners, and grants to provide our services, maintain our property and care for our horses. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
Traditionally, therapeutic services can be quite costly and we understand that the cost of caring for someone with different needs is also financially challenging for families. We work hard to provide affordable therapeutic services to those who will benefit from our programs. With these goals in mind, we rely on supporters like you to keep our doors open to the community and make a significant impact in the lives of our participants.
Quick Link PayPal Donation
Unrestricted general donations help us maintain daily operations and horse care, as well as offset our therapeutic session costs, of which our nominal session fees only cover 40% of actual costs. Donate by clicking the PayPal link above or contacting the Community Foundation of Cleveland Bradley County, donor manager for TSTRC.
Our horse sponsorship program allows you to adopt a horse for a quarter, half-year or year-long term. This helps to provide feed, bedding, farrier costs, and needed equipment for that horse. Platinum, Gold, and Silver levels of sponsorship provide varying levels of benefits. Typical monthly expenses for basic care for our herd are over $3,650.

Donating Gift Cards
We accept when appropriate tack, horse supplies, or gift cards from local feed and farm suppliers, such as Tractor Supply and Beaty's Hardware. You can drop off at the Barn Office or mail to our physical address.
Families of children with special needs are often financially stretched thin. Even though our fees cover only 40% of our costs, many of our riders cannot afford outside therapeutic services and depend on our services for their assistance. Participant Scholarships help us to offer our services for the benefit of children in our community who could not otherwise participate.
