When someone who can't walk, rides a horse

for the first time, it's like a miracle."

What We Do

Since its inception in 1978 T.E.A.D. has provided thousands of individuals young and old with a different approach to their situation. Located in the rolling pastures of Mount Hope, T.E.A.D. is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life for children and adults with disabilities through equestrian therapy, a proven method in dealing with the challenges presented to them by their disabilities.

We endeavor to fulfill our mission statement with honesty, integrity and accountability, with which the professionalism and compassion of staff, instructors and volunteers empower our riders with disabilities to a level of riding that earns the respect of all involved at T.E.A.D.
