Welcome to SDTR

Our mission is to provide equine-assisted therapy promoting the physical, emotional and educational growth of children and adults with disabilities in our community. We are a 501(c)(3), non-profit, PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International) affiliated center located in Eastern Sussex County. Presently, we are the only PATH-affiliated center in Sussex and Kent Counties, Delaware. Our PATH-certified therapeutic riding instructors and trained volunteers have provided planned sessions in equine-assisted therapy to children and adults with disabilities since 1988.

SDTR Capital Campaign

Capital campaign fund-raising

The purchase of the Harbeson Rd. property was facilitated with a private loan from an SDTR supporter. A campaign is now underway to pay back that loan and cover the costs of desired facility improvements, to enable SDTR to serve a growing constituency.
