Whether buying gifts for a friend, family member or oneself, SDTR’s Thanks For Giving Auction may be the source for the most memorable gifts of the year.

With more than 70 items up for bid, it is possible to find anything from gift certificates for goods and services from local merchants to original artwork by Sussex County artists.

One new offering should be especially popular: an in-person riding lesson in the indoor arena with one of SDTR’s highly qualified, certified riding instructors and a gentle, well-trained horse.

For collectors, there is an assortment of world-renowned Breyer equine figures available. To place a bid, go to, select a category and start bidding.

Southern Delaware Therapeutic Riding has been a unique, important charitable organization in Sussex County and an invaluable part of the community since 1988. Its organizers thank the Delmarva community for all the support it has given.

SDTR’s mission is to improve the physical and emotional well-being of children and adults living with disabilities by providing a supportive environment for these individuals and their families through riding, caring for, and interacting with horses.

2020 has been a difficult time for everyone in the community. Due to COVID-19 precautions, SDTR has not been able to offer its customary riding lessons or hold regular, in-person fundraising events. Online support like the Thanks For Giving Auction is more important than ever.

Winning bids in the auction will help maintain this local program’s year-round operations. For more information or to donate directly, go to
