When we tell people about the mission of Exceptional Equestrians, they can’t help but be inspired, and they almost always ask “How can we help?” As the only therapy services organization in Northeastern Wisconsin that serves all children and adults with disabilities regardless of their ability to pay, Exceptional Equestrians relies on the financial generosity of individuals, businesses, and charitable organizations.

Sponsor a Rider $5,600 annually

Thanks to our scholarship program, our fees are on a sliding scale for those in need. Your gift of $5,600 sponsors a rider for one year and allows us to be able to continue providing access to affordable services.

Sponsor a Horse $3,500 annually

A true therapy horse is rare and the connection they create is priceless. At Exceptional Equestrians, we consider our horses to be more than tools, they are partners. We take their health and well-being very seriously. It costs $3,500 per year to feed, house, and care for each of our 13 therapy horses. When you sponsor an Exceptional Equestrians therapy horse, you are supporting a critical member of our therapy team.
