Description

In 1964 Marjorie Kittredge started the therapeutic riding program with a small group of students who had emotional challenges and learning disabilities from the Gifford School, then located in Cambridge, MA.



Since then, WFTE has expanded to include children and adults with physical and developmental disabilities, and those who are dealing with mental health issues. WFTE provides volunteer opportunities for youth "at risk", and employs adults with developmental disabilities to help with stable chores.



WFTE’s newest program, Horses for Heroes (H4H) is available to all veterans with disabilities and plans to serve wounded personnel from the Iraq and Afghanistan conflicts.



Massachusetts Special Olympics has chosen WFTE to host the Equestrian Finals of their Fall Tournament every year since 1992, and WFTE has a special program to integrate challenged and regular riders.



WFTE has achieved Premier Therapeutic Riding Center accreditation from the North American Riding for the Handicapped Association and certification from the American Hippotherapy Association.
