About Breaking Free Therapeutic Riding Center Inc.

Location:

Mission Statement

Our Mission is to provide an equestrian therapeutic environment for physically, mentally, and emotionally challenged Individuals; furthermore, to allow them to explore and achieve basic life functions to the best of their ability; and, to create a sense of freedom, independence and accomplishment which cannot be achieved or duplicated in the traditional therapeutic setting. We hope this helps us as volunteers and promotes others to grow in dedication and responsibility through providing equine activities and programs for individuals with special needs.
