What We Do at Freedom Hooves Therapeutic Riding Center

Freedom Hooves Therapeutic Riding Center has been providing services since 1999 and is devoted to serving children and adults with disabilities through equine-assisted therapies.
FHTRC focuses on therapeutic riding. Rather than just being ponied around, those who take part in this type of therapy see a number of benefits in many areas. These include psychological, physical, social, and educational gains.

What is Therapeutic Riding?

A physical, cognitive, or emotional special need does not limit a person from interacting with horses. In fact, such interactions can prove to be highly rewarding, both physically and emotionally.

Benefits of Therapeutic Riding

Therapeutic Riding sessions at FHTRC are taught by PATH.Intl certified Therapeutic Riding Instructors. We accept riders 4 years of age and older. We are always open to emails and phone calls from those interested in riding with us!

About Freedom Hooves Therapeutic Riding Center

Freedom Hooves Therapeutic Riding Center was incorporated in 1999 as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We have grown to include many new staff members and many dedicated volunteers. We have 6 wonderful horses to serve our clients. We currently serve approximately 35 clients weekly.

Mission Statement

Dedicated to improving the quality of life for anyone with a physical, mental, or emotional disability through therapeutic riding.

Our Sincere Thanks

Like many non-profit organizations, keeping FHTRC running smoothly and growing gradually is a balancing act. Thanks to our enthusiastic staff, dedicated volunteers and generous donors, we are able to focus on helping people one ride at a time!

Thanks to the support and hospitality of D&J Ranch and Dane and Jenny Wadley, we have the use of a beautiful setting in which to operate. D&J Ranch includes both indoor and outdoor arenas, trails, stables, and pasture for our special herd of therapy horses. We are fortunate to share this wonderful facility with a few private boarders.

A great big “Thank You” to everyone who contributes to our mission and our passion!
