The Mission of the Southern Vermont Therapeutic Riding Center
is to enrich, educate and expand the lives
of individuals with special needs
through Equine Assisted Activities & Therapies (EAAT).
In its short history since being founded in 2010, SVTRC has grown from
a few initial riders--both children and adults--to successfully working with programs and
schools including veterans' programs, the Brattleboro Retreat, Kindle Farm School, The
INSPIRE School and local elementary and high schools. Since the fall of 2012, Landmark
College has enlisted SVTRC to provide their Equine Assisted Learning classes.
SVTRC also partners with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Brattleboro to provide riding for
groups of "Littles" while the "Bigs" volunteer as side-walkers and helpers.
