Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Windridge Therapeutic Equestrian Center of East Texas, Inc. strives to enhance the quality of life for children, adults, and veterans with disabilities or mental health needs through equine-assisted activities and therapy programs.


Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.

Our organization conducts Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT) programs with instructors, specialists, counselors, trainers and/or facilitators who have certified training for their scope of practice applicable to the people participating in the programs and specific to the program offerings - serving as staff (full-time or part-time), as independent contractors, and/or as service providers, serving in a volunteer capacity, or accompanying clients when participating in our programs.

Our organization does not provide community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Volunteer Opportunities


Special Projects
Minimum Age: 14
Windridge resides on 35 acres and with this is the responsibility for fencing, erosion control and facility maintenance. Windridge's special projects include building a section of perimeter fence; fix an area to improve drainage, and finish our covered bridge in our sensory trail. As a result of the drought last summer Windridge has lost several trees. We need someone with the equipment and skills to cut down and remove the trees.

Program Volunteers
Minimum Age: 14
Program volunteers are the lifeblood to Windridge's programs. Volunteers assist instructors with horse care, preparation for a participant's class time and aid the participant throughout their class time as a leader or a side-walker.

Training sessions are provided to further volunteer's knowledge and skills.


Wish List Items


Equine Sponsorship
Each horse, that is a part of Windridge's equine staff, has been donated. Each horse receives specialized training to aid and support the children and adults who participate in one of five programs offered at Windridge. Windridge needs sponsors to support the annual care of the horses. An annual sponsorship is $1700 a year.

Rider Scholarships
High medical costs, lack of insurance, and high gas costs strap a families budget. 68% of those who participate in Windridge's equine assisted activities and therapy programs cannot afford the minimal session fee. Scholarships are needed to support a participant's involvement.
Fall Scholarships - $650
Winter Scholarships - $650
Spring Scholarships - $520
Summer Scholarships - $520
