Riding to Recovery

Horses and healing for sick children

Riding to Recovery is a program now open under the direction of Lucia DiBenedetto at Stonelea Farm in Aldie, Virginia, providing emotional and spiritual healing using the horse. This program is dedicated to serving children with illnesses versus disabilities as one would find at a traditional therapeutic riding center. Children faced with acute illnesses, where medical treatments and endless hospital visits are an integral part of their life, need a mental as well as physical reprieve from their pain.

Riding to Recovery provides children with a much-needed pleasurable outlet and gives them an identity outside of being ill. Horseback riding, along with the close relationships children build through working with horses, is a life-affirming journey toward wellness.

For more information about our program, please contact us.
