An equestrian center in northern Ohio is going forward with riding therapy lessons after a devastating fire killed six of its therapy horses earlier this week.

The operators of the Vail Meadows Equestrian Center near Toledo plan to hold their weekly sessions on Saturday even though the fire killed all but of their therapy horses.

The center has offered horse-riding therapy programs for people with cerebral palsy, autism, and emotional and learning disabilities for two decades.

The horses that died were in a century-old barn that burned down Thursday. The cause isn't yet known, but investigators don't suspect arson.
