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


Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.

Our organization provides equine-assisted activities and/or therapies (EAAT) for individuals with special needs but DOES NOT use instructors, specialists, counselors, trainers and/or facilitators who have certified training for their scope of practice applicable to the people participating in the programs and specific to the program offerings - serving as staff (full-time or part-time), as independent contractors, and/or as service providers, serving in a volunteer capacity, or accompanying clients when participating in our programs.

Our organization does not provide community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.
