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.
You can support us in our commitment to help children, teens, and adults with special needs "experience the exceptional" with a gift of any amount
If you have questions about our charitable giving opportunities, please call us at (920) 347-3174 or contact Aaron Geitner at email@example.com.

Sponsor a Rider ($5,600 annually)
We recognize that families of children with special needs face financial hardships. Time away from work and myriad extra expenses come with the territory. We are committed to ensuring that no one misses the opportunity to receive therapy due to financial burden.
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.
To sponsor a rider, click the donate button in the upper right hand corner of this page, make a donation of $5,600 or more, and note "Sponsor a Rider." You will be contacted about recognition for your generous gift.
Sponsor a Horse ($3,500 annually)
A true therapy horse is rare and the connection they create, 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 12 therapy horses. When you sponsor an Exceptional Equestrians therapy horse, you are supporting a critical member of our therapy team.
A sponsorship plaque will be placed on your horse’s stall, and you will also receive a plaque commemorating your generosity. Your sponsorship will be recognized on our Web site and via social media unless otherwise requested.
To adopt a horse, click the donate button in the upper right hand corner of this page, make a donation of $3,500 or more, and note "Sponsor a Horse." For more information about sponsoring a therapy horse, please call us at (920) 347-3174 or email Aaron Geitner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
