Welcome to TiAnViCa Riding Academy


This year TiAnViCa will be hosting The Preakness Stakes for our annual fundraiser. When we first begun this journey, we were unaware of where it would take us, we simply wanted to make available a much-needed service for the special needs community in Lakeland and its surrounding areas. This year TiAnViCa will be marking its thirteenth anniversary, we have been privileged to work alongside many parents, caregivers, volunteers and horses to bring joy, laughter, acceptance and awareness to the need for equine assisted therapies. We hope you can come alongside us as a sponsor to Cowboy Up for TiAnViCa or with a donation for our silent auction table. Your help will provide the opportunity for participants to be a part of the equine assisted therapies at TiAnViCa.

TiAnViCa is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization which provides therapeutic riding for individuals with disabilities, wounded veterans and youth-at-risk. It combines instruction in traditional horsemanship skills with concepts of physical therapy to improve the strength, balance, and self-esteem for children and adults with physical, mental, and emotional disabilities. The horse is the motivator; encouraging verbalization, physical activity, and challenges to all riders. Most of all, it is fun!

The “Cowboy Up for TiAnViCa” event, which celebrates the “Preakness Stakes” segment, attracts more attendees every year. Therefore, since our financial support for our programs comes through grants and donations, we are reaching out to our friends in the business community for your support.

You can help by becoming a Sponsor, by doing so you are helping the children and adults who are serviced by TiAnViCa and their horses. Sponsorship levels are as follows:

$2,000+ Triple Crown Sponsor
$1,000+ Winner’s Circle Sponsor
$500+ Blue Ribbon Sponsor
$200+ Preakness Sponsor

Purchasing tickets for our event is a win/win situation when our program participants and horses benefit from your donation and you receive the goodwill which comes because of your generosity. Please contact our office at 888-548-2972 for more information or to have your donation picked up by someone from our committee.
