Who We Are

Fieldstone Farm is one of the largest and most respected therapeutic equine centers in the country serving more than 900 students annually. Our therapy horses help people of all ages with a variety of emotional, physical and cognitive challenges reach goals they never thought possible. Since our founding in 1978, we have helped tens of thousands of people improve their emotional and physical well-being.

Our largest population of students are those struggling with mental health disorders including anxiety, depression, OCD, PTSD, grief and survivors of trauma, cancer and violence, totaling nearly 50 percent. We are also well-versed in working with students with a variety of cognitive and physical challenges including autism, cerebral palsy, neurological disorders and sight impairments, among others. Ranging in age from four to 80 years old and older, our students come from throughout Northeast Ohio.

Horses help people with depression find hope, joy and motivation. Watch our video about Ania to find out how horses saved her life.

Sisters share love of horses

Kylie always wanted to ride a horse. Her dream came true at Fieldstone Farm with the help of A Special Wish Foundation, an organization that grants requests to children with life-threatening disorders.

She began riding at the beginning of 2021 with her younger sister, Kaitlyn. Both girls instantly found friends in our therapy horses.
