Welcome to Iron Horse Therapeutic Farm
Creating a new normal for all abilities to work & grow in our communities.
Iron Horse Therapeutic Farm is an ADA-accessible farm just outside of old town Timnath, Colorado. At the farm, we have horses, goats, farm cats & our favorite donkey, Bob.
The ten-acres we are lucky to call home is the perfect space for Occupational Therapy Utilizing Equine Movement, farm-based therapy, and adaptive gardening. We are proud to closely partner with Integrated Pediatric Therapy Associates to provide occupational therapy and music therapy in this unique setting.
Iron Horse Therapeutic Farm has been a long-term dream of owner Taneal Behm & her family. When she was younger, Taneal's grandmother gave her the poem "Iron Horse". After reading this poem, the dream of creating a facility where those of different abilities could experience life from the back of a horse was born.

What Our Clients Say
My son has been going here for a year now and absolutely loves it, he has gained so much with his therapists and of course his horse! Core strength has improved tremendously and his way of communicating has advanced as well! Great people and community!! Couldn't recommend a better place!
Taneal, Leah, and the rest of the staff are warm, attentive, and conscientious towards both humans and their animals. As a horse owner and also a parent of a child who has attended many types of supportive therapies, I've seen a range of programs; this one is by far the most organized and thoughtfully run. At Iron Horse, the animals are all happy and confident, and the people are treated with the utmost respect and care.
The dedication from volunteers alone help outline the attentive care that is present at this facility.
