It's a new beginning for New Beginnings Therapeutic Riding!

After 15 years the program said it would be moving.

After the founders moved, the non-profit had only a month to find a new home.

But now they're prayers have been answered.

It's a place that provides freedom for nearly 170 students.

"I love just being able to get out of a chair everyday,"says Elizabeth Roberts, a student.

When they found out they only had a month to find a new farm they were optimistic but skeptical.

"Everyday all you can do is just...prayer,"says Michelle Vise of New Beginnings.

Owners of Pine Spring Farms Kenny and Jackie Reynolds would soon answer their prayers.

"We just happened to have this facility available at the time and he called and said what do you think? This is what they're asking for do you want to do this? And I said yes," says Jackie Reynolds.

The 380 acre farm has opened up new possibilities for New Beginnings.

"It's absolutely beautiful, its a 44 stable barn, were able to accommodate our 7 horses, and we can have classes year around now,"says Vise.

Reynolds says she plans to be involved with the students therapy.

"You never know how many families are affected by children with disabilities or anything that makes them feel they are not normal, but this makes them feel like they are like everyone else,"says Reynolds.

"It's changed my life in a way that I can be stronger. That I can be anything I want to and not have to hide,"says Roberts.

And New Beginnings message to the Reynolds.

"Words are hard to express the appreciation that we have for them. They've opened up their hearts to us and they've allowed the program to open up a new chapter,"says Vise.

"If it ended I don't know what I would do,"says Roberts.

They will be hosting a rider volunteer orientation on January 7Th.
