Flint Hills Therapeutic Riding Center strives to improve the quality of life for children and adults with physical, mental, or emotional disabilities through equine assisted activities and therapy. Our goal is to increase awareness of the benefits of these unique programs and extend equine assisted therapy services to a broader segment of the community. Thanks to the support and hospitality of D&J Ranch and Dane and Jenny Wadley, we have the use of a beautiful setting in which to operate. D&J Ranch includes both indoor and outdoor arenas, trails, stables, and pasture for our special herd of therapy horses. We are fortunate to share this wonderful facility with several private boarders. A great big Thank-You to those have been so very accommodating to our program!!!
Hippotherapy The term hippotherapy refers to the use of the movement of the horse as a treatment strategy by physical therapists, occupational therapists and speech/language pathologists to address impairments, functional limitations and disabilities in patients with neuromotor and sensory dysfunction. This treatment strategy is used as part of an integrated treatment program to achieve functional goals. Therapeutic Riding Therapeutic riding uses equine-assisted activities for the purpose of contributing positively to cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being of people with disabilities. Therapeutic riding provides benefits in the areas of therapy, education sport and recreation & leisure.

Our horses at FHTRC are vital to our program and they truly are our therapists.
The horses love their riders as much as we do and riders look forward to personal time with their horse every single week.
Help us care for these amazing animals so they can care for our riders.
