Equine Programs for People with Disabilities

Fieldstone Farm is recognized as one of the largest therapeutic riding centers in North America. Founded in 1978 with the goal of helping improve the lives of those with special needs, the organization is breaking new ground in the field of equine therapy and changing many lives in the community. Each year, as a result of the dedication of more than 600 volunteers and 35 horses, Fieldstone helps nearly 800 students achieve what they often thought was impossible.

Located on 45 acres in Bainbridge Township, Fieldstone Farm serves clients from all over Northeast Ohio. Many travel miles to experience Fieldstone's unique and worthwhile programs. Students range from age two to seniors and have a wide range of disabilities from cognitive impairments such as Down Syndrome or Autism Spectrum Disorder to physical disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy and spinal cord injuries as well as mental health issues and sensory impairments. All are interacting with our horses while they improve their balance, strengthen muscles, work on educational goals, advance communication skills, increase their self-esteem and gain confidence.


How Horses Make a Difference

For children and adults with disabilities, the equestrian experience is life changing. No other therapeutic recreational opportunity benefits so many aspects of a disability in such a holistic way. Imagine the sense of confidence and independence a rider who uses a wheelchair feels on a horse. Think of a student's muscles growing stronger as he brushes his horse. Watch the emotional connection a rider develops with her horse, instructor, volunteers and fellow students. At Fieldstone Farm, these kinds of "Little Victories" happen every day. It's a special place where riders of all ages benefit physically, cognitively and emotionally from a wide variety of horse experiences tailored to their needs by a trained team of horses, instructors and volunteers.

Fieldstone offers private and group lessons and collaborates with a number of school districts, including Beachwood, Cleveland, Mayfield, Solon, and Shaker Heights, among others. It also works with a number of organizations to develop programming for specialized groups including the Veterans Administration, The Gathering Place and Montefiore.

Mission: Fieldstone Farm engages the therapeutic power of our horses to discover and nurture the special abilities of individuals, families and communities.
