mission & vision

To Help All Those We Can


More than 1 in 5 adults with a mental health disability report difficulty getting care due to costs. Help us make a difference in the lives of thousands.

We also now home some chickens and goats -- to help our more timid riders, ease into interactions with animals. 


Our equine-assisted therapy (EAT) program is intended to complement traditional clinical therapy. Learn more about this recreational approach.

The Freedom Riding facilities were built in 1903, originally as a dairy farmhouse. Over the years the 5-acre plot has been converted from an operational farm to a new community gathering spot. The boutique barn is located in the Greater DC area, a mile from highway 66.

The site includes stables, an outdoor riding arena, paddocks, an additional play area for non-riding children, a few, well-lit desks for those who need to get some homework done, a snack station, a handful of extra phone chargers, in case you forget yours.   We know the whole family joins the rider some days: we welcome all.  Due to our commitment to the local area, we strive for our facilities to be an open, embracing area, where families can relax, or fit in a quick work email, while our riders focus on their joy.
