Thorncroft's Vision and Mission

The Work

Established in 1969, Thorncroft is one of the oldest Therapeutic Equestrian Centers in the United States. Thorncroft specializes in therapeutic horseback riding for both children and adults with mental, emotional and physical disabilities. Thorncroft is here to serve; we provide an environment of love and respect, which allows true healing and growth to occur.

Thorncroft serves 350 students per week. In 2019, the Farm will give out more than $65,000 in scholarship to students who, due to financial constraints, were unable to afford the therapy offered at Thorncroft.


Our mission is to develop the physical and emotional well-being of all people regardless of their individual challenges. We are committed to personal growth and education in an equestrian environment of respect, love and inclusion.


Thorncroft Equestrian Center is a premier leader in the field of therapeutic horsemanship. Our Farm embraces the continuing education and development of high quality programs and instruction. Thorncroft brings out the gifts and abilities of all people and helps them realize their potential.
