(WKBW) — A local therapeutic company that offers horseback riding for people with disabilities is now expanding.

Lothlorien Therapeutic Riding Center, Inc. is now an affiliate of People Inc, which is one of the largest health and human services agencies in the area.

“We’re looking forward to embracing this new level of partnership with Lothlorien to help create new opportunities for the people our agencies support,” said Rhonda Frederick, president and CEO, People Inc. “The long-lasting benefits of the program will continue to help people thrive and achieve significant physical, emotional and cognitive milestones.”

This partnership will allow Lothlorien to expand its mission in helping people develop through different riding activities.

“This affiliation is very exciting for all of us at Lothlorien. This is an opportunity for us to honor the history created by the Lothlorien leadership, while developing new services and reaching more people,” said Maggie Keller, Lothlorien executive director.

Last year, Lothlorien served more than 700 people.
