Congratulations Alexa Dubois — You are our TEC Volunteer of 2016!!!
The TEC 2016 Horse Show is now over. Heartfelt thanks to all the volunteers and staff that made this possible. To the volunteers and staff that spent extra time days before the show for the planning. To the judge who took the time to address and complement each class before awarding the ribbons. To the ring master who introduced each competitor and horse before the course start and also was able to play musical stalls with the horses so effectively. To the contributors that made the show possible with their generous donations. To the individuals that acted as side walkers and horse preparers. To the competitors and their parents/caretakers who rode and supported them. And finally to the horses who without them there would be no show.
TEC Makes a Difference…
This email from the mom of one of our new riders:
Hi. I just wanted to let you know how much my daughter is loving the horseback riding lessons this summer! She seems so confident and sure of herself when she is riding, not one sign of her ADHD or anxieties! You have such a wonderful program and I feel blessed to have found you. Thank you so much! Also, I would be very interested in having her continue lessons in the fall.
