Southern Delaware Therapeutic & Recreational Horseback Riding, Inc. (SDTRHR)

17170 Harbeson Rd
Milton DE 19968

Our accessible riding center is located in Milton, DE.  Children and adults with special needs receive equine assisted therapy including therapeutic horseback riding lessons designed to address their individual needs in a safe, positive environment. Our four certified riding instructors and trained therapy horses and volunteers work to increase each participant's confidence and focus while improving their core strength, balance and flexibility. Lessons also promote improved communication, social skills, concentration and problem solving ability. Our participants include students at Howard T. Ennis School and the Sussex Consortium.  

SDTR also serves summer campers from the Children's Beach House, who have developmental delays or other disabilities, and injured veterans and their families through Operation SEAS the Day.

A Lewes pediatrician said this about the effect therapeutic riding has had on his patient:  “Physically, D. has made dramatic improvements in balance, core strength and tone. He sits up straight on his horse and these improvements are evident seeing him in his chair in the office. Likewise, the last time he was in for a visit, he seemed even more social, interactive and alert. I think he has found his passion! Thanks for giving him a sport of his own!”
