Improving Lives One Stride at a Time

SDTR Now Has a New Home

Southern Delaware Therapeutic Riding has moved to its new permanent home on Harbeson Road (Route 5) in Milton, Delaware. The purchase of this property was made possible by early donations and a generous private bridge loan from an SDTR supporter. A capital campaign is now underway to pay back that loan and cover the costs of desired facility improvements, which will enable SDTR to serve a significantly larger and growing constituency.

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.
