Tri-State Therapeutic Riding Program Awarded BACHMAN FOUNDATION Grant

April 3, 2023, Cleveland TN   

The Bachman Foundation is a private foundation located in Cleveland TN.  They provide students in East Tennessee who learn differently with scholarships and grants to help offset the rising costs associated with individualized education through public, private, and vocational schools. This represents their 5th year of giving and over $450,000 in grants awarded since its inception. 

Their generous contribution will help us to provide equine-assisted therapy sessions to those that could not afford to participate otherwise. Part of our mission is that no one is turned away regardless of ability to pay, and our ability to do that depends on the support from community leaders like the Bachman Foundation!


Bachman Foundation Board members at the presentation were Jeff Gregory, chairman; Ken Weller, treasurer; and Mike Sikes, trustee. Also present was Mark Frizzell, Bachman’s executive director. 

Representing TSTRC were Olivia Rekoske Executive Director and Tara Yelliott, Barn Manager and Licensed Physical Therapist and Owner with Reinbow Rehabilitation.
