EcoPhones is an electronics recycling organization that helps non-profits raise money and also keeps harmful electronics out of our landfills. For every item (working and non-working) we send in, we get paid...it's that easy! If you have inkjet cartridges, cell phones, laptap and notebook computers, mp3 players, digital cameras, iPads and tablets, please contact us here and we'll set up a time for you to drop the items off at our facility or you can mail them to us.

Do you use the internet? Obviously so if you're here! Special Equestrians is partners with goodsearch, a website where you can do every day internet functions to help us raise money. Need to do an internet search or check the weather? What about shop for a holiday or pass the time by playing some online games? You can do all that and much more and raise money for us! Think about it-we earn one penny just for one internet search. Say you do two searches a day, as do 19 other people. In one year we could earn $146 just by doing what we all normally do already! Just click here and find us under "SETC".
Shopping at stores can be time consuming, stressful and sometimes, even more expensive. But just about every store has an online presence, along with sites offering a variety of merchandise all in one place. Goodshop, a branch of goodsearch (see above), works alongside a number of online stores. Simply visit their website here, find us under "SETC", then find your favorite store and do your shopping. In turn, a percentage is donated to our organization.
In May, 2013 a group of equine enthusiasts who were inspired by the power of horses and ponies to heal bodies, minds and spirits banded together in a grass roots fundraising initiative. They formed Give a Buck, in Vero Beach, to support us here at Special Equestrians of the Treasure Coast. Since then, Give a Buck has expanded throughout Florida. For more info, visit them here.
As you may know, it costs $$$$ to keep a horse. Add in 6+ more on top of that and you've got a very expensive program to run! It costs us, at a minimum, $1035.00 every MONTH just to feed seven horses and put shavings in
their stalls. This amount does not include vet and hoof care,
medicines for everyday scrapes, cuts and bug bites, grooming
and bathing supplies, etc. as well as the costs of running our
therapeutic riding program. Not only do we appreciate
monetary donations, but also items that we use on a regular basis.
Below is a list of items we use every single day. To donate, please contact us here. We often buy these items at Audreys 2 U (772-567-4750), The Trading Post (772-778-3311), or Fellsmere Feed, Tack & Farm Supply (772-571-8199).
