Our mission is to enhance the development and quality of life for children with special needs in Western New York by providing an accredited therapeutic riding program in a safe and nurturing environment.
There is a unique bond between horses and people that can be particularly meaningful to children with disabilities. Riding programs provide a relaxing, non-academic environment in which children can interact with adults and peers and more importantly with their horse.
The Buffalo Therapeutic Riding Center is the only indoor riding facility uniquely located in the heart of the city of Buffalo, and has been the site of a therapeutic riding program since the 1980s. The BTRC currently offers programs for mentally and emotionally impaired, learning disabled and developmentally challenged children ages 5 to 18.
