Southern Delaware Therapeutic Riding has moved to its new permanent home on 17170 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.
SDTR takes pride in providing exceptional care to our hard-working, four legged therapists. This holiday season, consider sponsoring one of SDTR's horses as a gift, or in memory of a loved one. You will receive a card and a certificate from your horse, with a framed picture.
SDTR's horse sponsorship program is a way to express your appreciation for one or more special members of our herd. Click on the button below to see all of their photos and biographies in the SDTR Horses section of our website.
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.
