How to Donate
"Acceptional Rider" Program Donations
"Acceptional Riders" is a Registered Canadian Charity.
Every cent donated stays in the Chatham-Kent community to provide special needs riders the opportunity to enjoy horseback riding. Donations are required to subsidize the cost for riders, purchase specialty tack, program related equipment such as ramps, lifts and insurance costs. As the need for therapeutic riding continues to increase, TJ Stables is committed to its policy to never refuse any child the opportunity to ride regardless of their financial situation.

I Saw A Child
by John Anthony Davies
I saw a child who couldn’t walk,
Sit on a horse, laugh and talk,
then ride it through a field of daisies
and yet he could not walk unaided.
I saw a child no legs below,
Sit on a horse, and make it go
Through wood of green
and places he had never been
To sit and stare, except from a chair.
I saw a child who could only crawl,
Mount a horse and sit up tall;
then put it through degrees of paces,
and laugh at the wonder in our faces.
I saw a child born into strife,
Take up and hold the reins of life
and that same child was heard to say
Thank God for showing me the way.
