Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
The Mission of the Buffalo Therapeutic Riding Center is to enhance the development and quality of life for special needs children in Western new York by providing an accredited therapeutic riding program in a safe and nurturing environment
The Buffalo Therapeutic Riding Center is a non-profit organization which provides a PATH Premier Accredited therapeutic riding program to Western New York children with special needs to help them develop social, emotional, physical and educational skills. We provide a stimulating environment for underprivileged, mentally and emotionally impaired, learning disabled, developmentally and physically challenged children aged 6-18. Each student has a program individualized to their specific needs. Riding is divided into (6) four-week riding sessions. Each child is encouraged to attend as many sessions as possible to receive maximum benefit. The lessons may be 1/2 hour for private or 45 minutes for group lessons (maximum 4 riders per session). The program runs April through November. We are located in the City of Buffalo and are accessible by public transportation, therefore are able to serve a larger community than the rural centers where most equine facilities are located.
