The Martha’s Vineyard Community Horse Center will soon become Misty Meadows Equine Learning Center.

The two Vineyard nonprofits that focus on connecting people with horses announced a merger this week. The combined center will be in West Tisbury.


Rising Tide’s mission is rooted in the idea that everyone can benefit from the connection between humans and horses. In keeping with this belief, the center recently expanded their programming.

Rising Tide Therapeutic Equestrian Center has two annual benefits coming up.


Time to kick-up the heels of your riding boots for Rising Tide Therapeutic Center’s fall fundraiser.


There are many benefits and hardships from living on an Island. I would like to expound on one of the benefits which we experienced at our annual fundraiser this past August. I am referring to Rising Tide Equestrian Center’s party that was held on Wednesday, August 8. There are over 200 nonprofit organizations here on the Vineyard, and most of us rely on the generosity of Island residents and businesses to help us make our yearly financial budgets. Especially in this time of economic uncertainty, fundraising is a real challenge. Many businesses are asked many, many times for support from all of us in the nonprofit sector.
