We have been serving children and adults with special needs for over 25 years. We provide life-changing equine-assisted therapy.
Our mission is to provide equine-assisted therapy promoting the physical, emotional and educational growth of children and adults with special needs in our community. We are a 501(c)(3), non-profit, PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International) affiliated center located in Eastern Sussex County. Presently, we are the only PATH-affiliated center in Sussex and Kent Counties. Our PATH-certified therapeutic riding instructors and trained volunteers have provided planned sessions in equine-assisted therapy to children and adults with special needs since 1988.
Big thanks to the awesome SDTR volunteers & horses who hosted a group from the Operations SEAs the Day Wounded Warrior Project! We had a great afternoon with a lot of new friends who enjoyed their time with Lucy, Willy & Stormy. Many smiles and laughs filled the day. Thanks so much to Donnel, Keith, Pat, Buddy, Jenn, Mary Anne & Joe for all your help!!!
