It costs roughly $2,000 a month to care for our lesson horses (including boarding fees, food, supplements, farrier care and vet care) and our staff is currently working for free including our program director and instructor.  As our program grows we will be fully self-supporting but we'd like to be able to afford to operate while we grow.  Our goal is to be able to offer our students scholarships and sliding scale along with obtaining a contract through DSHS DDA division (Developmental Disabilities Administration) to reimburse clients for lessons.

Horses have been an indispensable asset in Julia Montagnet's own healing from a diagnosis of Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis forty-two years ago at the age of 12, along with a diagnosis of complex PTSD from childhood trauma, a teenage diagnosis of anorexia,  after a total hip replacement in 2018, and as a stroke survivor (carotid artery dissection ischemic stroke 2019). 

For decades Julia has dreamed of bringing this healing to others who are in need of rehabilitation and healing.  In 2011 Julia had the opportunity to begin teaching riding lessons at a horse camp in Redmond, WA.  Parents of children with disabilities would ask if they could attend the lessons and Julia volunteered to teach any student with a disability.  Soon word spread and she had several studies with developmental disabilities.  

This inspired her to become a certified therapeutic riding instructor through PATH International.  Julia did her mentorship horse at Rainier Therapeutic by Joint Base Lewis McCord teaching veterans recovering from PTSD and combat injuries.  In 2017 she passed her test to receive her certification.

In 2021 Julia and her son moved to Port Angeles and quickly met community members who wanted to partner with her to start a therapeutic equestrian center.   Thus Tasha Therapeutic Equestrian Center was started.  Tasha is the name of Julia's friend, Cheryl's late horse who was the true definition of a therapy horse - kind, gentle, confident, and strong.
