Potential Students and Parents

Adopt-A-Rider Scholarship Program

Imagine ... making a wish come true ... giving hope ... providing a key to success ... Join the Cheff Therapeutic Riding Center’s Adopt-A-Rider Scholarship Program.  You will make a difference!

It's very simple.

A donation of $40 will sponsor a rider for a week. $250 will provide the financial support to care for a horse for one month, and $240 will provide a rider scholarship for a session. With a gift of $1600, you can adopt a rider or care for a horse for one year.

How our riders benefit:

Therapeutic Riding encourages riders to learn ... increases their concentration, patience and discipline ... develops a sense of control and independence. They sit taller. Focus better.

The motion and action of the horse improves posture, strengthens and relaxes the muscles and stimulates the nervous and circulatory system.

The rewards are great.

When you adopt a rider, you will receive a photograph of your rider with a thank you letter written by the rider. You will also receive an open invitation to visit anytime. Come out to the Cheff Therapeutic Riding Center to see your rider grow stronger in his or her skills and confidence. We promise complete satisfaction!

Please call Executive Director Tara East at (269) 731-4471 to find out how YOU can make a difference in the life of a child!
