We want to give a HUGE thank you to Bristol Motor Speedway / Children’s Charities for providing the money to provide interventions so that children and youth with neurological conditions (such as autism, cerebral palsy, learning disabilities) can benefit from our equine-assisted therapies and activities. Learn more about our therapeutic riding program.

A separate grant from Bristol Motor Speedway / Children’s Charities funded our Pony Partners Program for 2018-2019. This program has made a big difference in the lives of children in our area! We are continuing this program post-funding, thanks to the dedication of several volunteers. Learn more about the Pony Partners Program.

East Tennessee Youth Foundation has provided funding to support Ridin’ High’s mission of working with children and youth who are overcoming Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs). We are extremely grateful to this wonderful organization for partnering with Ridin’ High and impacting the lives of children and youth in our area. Riding interventions and summer camp opportunities will be provided, thanks to the East Tennessee Foundation to selected children and youth during 2019-2021. Please contact the office if you feel you have a child or youth who might benefit from this program.
