1) Legal Name and DBA: Breaking Free Therapeutic Riding Center. Breaking Free provides therapeutic horseback riding activities for children with a wide variety of disabilities who qualify under the Americans with Disabilities Act. In addition to weekly riding sessions day camps are offered to children with disabilities from area schools; and special camps are dedicated to children with targeted disabilities including Autism and Down’s syndrome. We also offer sessions for at-risk children involved through Local Youth Centers. Additionally, Breaking Free coordinates with local VA Clinic(s) to provide free, weekly therapeutic horseback riding lessons to veterans. The lessons provide veterans the opportunity to establish social and emotional connections with the horses and volunteer veterans in a supportive, non-threatening environment. 

  • Horse Donation - Most of our therapy horses have been donated to the center. All horses have a 6 week trial evaluation at the center before we accept them as part of our program. Currently we prefer horses between the ages of 5 -16 and in good health. You can contact us if you have a horse you are considering for donation.

  • Horse Sponsorship - Taking good care of our horses is a large part of our program budget. Sponsorships help purchase feed, hay, nutritional and medicinal supplements, bedding, farrier services, veterinary and dentistry care, and barn supplies such as feed tubs and water buckets, halters and lead ropes, fly spray, shampoo, liniment, wound-care materials, etc.

  • Wish list Donation - it takes a lot of supplies; from tack to feed to office supplies to educational materials to run our program. Please visit our Wishlist link for in-kind donations needed.
