What We Doa little rider on Ebony

Founded in 1978, TEAD has helped improve the lives of thousands of children, youth and adults with disabilities by providing therapeutic riding and equine-based programs.  Participants of all ages experience emotional and physical rewards through a range of services and activities.

TEAD is located in the rolling pastures of Mount Hope, and has a dedicated team of therapy horses, volunteers, staff and nationally certified therapeutic riding instructors.

The TEAD team is committed to fulfilling our mission with integrity, transparency and respect to ensure we develop and deliver quality programs that meet the needs of individuals and their families.

All horseshoes will be displayed inside our main barn entrance for all to see.
