Founded in 1978, T.E.A.D. is a charitable organization that provides therapeutic horseback riding instruction to people with physical and emotional disabilities.
Operating on a 15 acre horse farm in Mount Hope, Ontario, T.E.A.D. has a group of highly-skilled, nationally certified riding instructors; a network of more than 250 volunteers; a small, skilled and dedicated staff and a very active volunteer Board of Directors.
T.E.A.D. is a fully accredited therapeutic riding, training and examination facility and operates under the Safety and Operational Guidelines of both CanTRA (Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association) and OnTRA (Ontario Therapeutic Riding Association).
More than 300 special riders pass through T.E.A.D. each year.
T.E.A.D. relies solely on generous donations to keep our riding programs going. Your donations go directly to supporting our programs and operations to keep the doors open to provide a much needed form of therapy to those in our community who need it the most.
