Lily Creek Farms


Ohio is a great place to live and work. Filings and registrations are easy and convenient.


Lily Creek Farms is a therapeutic riding center with horses that help students reach their goals. They have a professional team providing hope and healing opportunities through the use of equine-assisted activities.

They have seen firsthand how working with a 1,500 pound animal and gaining its trust increases a person's self-confidence, self-respect, and sense of responsibility and belonging. The farm is place where people of all ages benefit physically, cognitively and emotionally from a wide variety of horse experiences tailored to their needs by their horses, instructors and volunteers.

At Lily Creek Farms “little victories” happen every day - a 10 year old with Autism as spoken his first words there; a 13 year old in a wheelchair rides independently now and adult students with MS have experienced reduced pain and increased flexibility. Youths with failing grades have also been admitted on the honor rolls and been accepted into colleges and work.

Lily Creek Farms programs include:

Therapeutic Riding – Riding sessions incorporate a wide range of goals into each session. Students ride weekly in small groups or individual sessions if needed.

Horsin' Around Field Trips – These programs run anywhere form 2 hours to a full day of farm fun, including art activities, horse care, riding, and even meals. Horsin' Around programs focus on any school, senior, veteran, or community organization.

Veterans Programs – They offer specialized programming for veterans and their families. These programs include riding and unmounted classes designed to help with the emotional and physical scars of military services.

Team Lily – The Lily Creek Farms traveling team consisting of a mini horse, mini pig, farm therapy dog, and sometimes a horse and carriage team. Their team visits local community events, senior centers, and other community organizations.
