Horses reach people
in extraordinary ways.
Our horses are helping our students reach goals they never imagined. People with autism and Down syndrome have said their first words. Adults with multiple sclerosis and children with neurological disorders have improved balance and gained strength after riding. Some have even taken their first steps. Children from the inner-city and high school students with emotional issues have gained confidence and become inspired to learn. Wounded military veterans and seniors with memory deficits have found comfort and hope from our horses. Discover how our horses can help you or someone you care about.
“People come to Fieldstone Farm thinking they can’t. They leave knowing they can.”
Lynnette Stuart, Chief Executive Officer and Advanced Therapeutic Riding Instructor
Our students range from age two to seniors in their 100s and have a wide range of challenges including: autism, anxiety, blindness, cerebral palsy, depression, Down syndrome, learning disabilities, multiple sclerosis, neurological disorders and spinal cord injuries, among others. All are working with our horses to challenge their limits, break through barriers and achieve goals such as independence, strength, self-esteem, balance, and socialization.
“The unique connection between horse and rider opens up new directions for growth, change, and recovery.”
Dr. Arthur Lavin, leading Cleveland pediatrician
