Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
The Loudoun Therapeutic Riding Foundation was founded in 1974 to empower and improve the lives of people with cognitive, physical, and psychological disabilities through the benefits of therapeutic horseback riding and other equine-assisted activities, while serving the therapeutic riding profession through training and education.

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

Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.

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