Welcome to Shining Light Equestrian! We are helping change the lives of children and adults with (or without) special needs. Our Therapeutic Riding Instructors & Therapists work together with God’s creation, equines (horses), to achieve many benefits! We don’t rescue horses. Our horses help rescue humans.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of East Tennessee has been transforming the lives of children since 1970. We are a member agency of the oldest and largest youth mentoring organization in the United States, consisting of more than 350 agencies nationwide.
Our vision is that all children achieve success in life.
Our mission is to provide children facing adversity with strong and enduring, professionally supported one-to-one relationships that change their lives for the better, forever.
The mission of STAR is to foster personal achievement by providing therapeutic experiences using horse related activities for persons with disabilities or other special challenges.
