Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
The mission of Breaking Free is to provide equine therapy sessions to children and adults with disabilities. In addition, we provide day camps and sessions for at-risk teens. Our newest program, Horses for Heroes, supports our veterans, and is always offered free of charge.
Therapeutic riding lessons are available to children and adults who qualify under the "Americans with Disabilities Act". PATH certified instructors work on individualized goals with students in order to meet physical, social, and academic goals. The horse is a means of exercise, as well as a warm and friendly companion.<br />Breaking Free's Horses for Heroes program is open to all eligible US Veterans who are interested in working with or around horses, or in a farm and barn atmosphere. The Horses for Heroes program allows Veterans to identify their own goals for the program and to work individually or in a group setting with their horse partner and an instructor. <br />Breaking Free also offers one day horse-centered day camps for school groups and clubs. Horse activities vary from all groundwork or may include riding.
