When a family like ours finds someone who can help our child with compassion and tenderness, and with total belief in his potential, that is a rare thing.”

Two Step Revolution, located in Knoxville, Tennessee, is dedicated to making a positive impact on our community through equine-assisted mental health services. Our team of licensed therapists and equine specialists uses proven techniques to incorporate horses into conventional therapy through Equine Assisted Learning and Equestrian Wellness Vaulting, resulting in a truly unique and impactful experience. We offer services for individuals, couples, families, and groups, including team building, and will soon expand our programming to include Intensive Outpatient Therapy.
As a 501(c)(3) non-profit, Two Step Revolution's mission is to make our services available to all who can benefit from them, regardless of financial circumstances. TSR does not turn anyone away do to inability to pay. Currently, over 90% of our clients pay a reduced fee, 80% pay less than half the normal fee, and some pay no fee at all. All TSR income, including outside funding, goes directly back into subsidizing these client fees, caring for our therapy horses, and paying business and facility expenses.
The major challenge we are currently facing as we continue to grow is our lack of sheltered space to conduct equine sessions. As an essential service provider, our organization operates year-round, but all too often, rain, storms, high winds, or extreme temperatures simply make outdoor equine sessions impossible. We are in need of a sheltered arena that will protect our participants from the elements, but there is currently no surplus in our operating budget for such an expense. In fact, during this season, therapy horse care expenses are much higher, and holidays, weather, and illness (especially this year) have significantly increased session and group cancellations.
Here is how you can become a TSR Hero...
Through fundraising efforts and the generosity of a few private donors, Two Step Revolution has raised enough to purchase a kit for a covered, all weather arena. The next step in the journey is preparing the land, laying footing for the safety of horses and riders, and professionally assembling and securing the structure to ensure it is safe, sound, and multi-functional. Our target financial goal includes purchase of additional materials, equipment rental, and estimated excavation and labor costs. Should we surpass that goal, any surplus donations will go toward programming subsidies for those unable to afford full treatment fees, care and feeding of our equine partners, and safety equipment for our participants.
"Equine assisted therapy improves quality of life and has been a turning point for recovery for hundreds of people including veterans, men, women and children."
Helping Two Step Revolution achieve our goal ensures a sunny day for our participants year-round!
Will you help us take this crucial step forward by donating today?
With immense hope and gratitude,
Alicia Stewart and Allison Yeager,
Co-Founders/Co-Directors of Two Step Revolution
