In a fun, supportive environment, Lovelane provides high-quality therapeutic horseback riding to acheive occupational, physical, speech, cognitive and other therapeutic gains, focusing on children with special needs.
Lovelane is a therapeutic horseback riding program that has a dramatic impact on the physical and cognitive development of children with special needs through its holistic approach and unique supportive environment.
Lovelane has been providing high-quality therapeutic horseback riding to children with special needs for 25 years. What started as the ultimate grassroots organization - serving five families in a backyard barn - has grown into a premier equine therapeutic program in a state-of-the-art indoor heated facility located in Lincoln, Massachusetts.
The organization believes in the significance of quality one-on-one support for each child. Our goal is to utilize the horse and this setting to make a significant impact on each child’s life beyond the riding ring. We do this through our personalized sessions, our long-term commitment to their growth, our constant communication with their families and through our intimate experience with their ever-changing needs and development.
