Wish List

Tiffany & ShiloSunCatcher Therapeutic Riding Academy is funded primarily from donations, fundraising events, grants and corporate gifts. The fee we charge of our riders/families for service does not begin to cover our costs. We must rely on the generosity of donors to help defray the cost of our therapeutic program ­ donations of time, equipment and money are greatly appreciated (and tax deductible!).

Volunteers are needed to assist with side walking, lead lining, instructing, grooming/tacking, fundraising, office work, and grant writing. Volunteer professional consultants are being sought in various fields.

Volunteers are always welcome!

If you are interested in volunteering please contact us at (605) 939-4907.

If you would like to donate equipment or money contact us at (605) 939-4907.
