WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — A cash-strapped therapeutic horse riding center in Wichita plans to close next month, The Wichita Eagle reports that the Flint Hills Therapeutic Riding Center has been unable to replace funding lost when its main corporate sponsor, Boeing, left town. It has also now lost its Medicaid insurance. The 14-year-old horse therapy center in southeast Wichita says it is about $50,000 a year short of the money needed to stay open. It says fundraising efforts launched in September brought in some small donors and a lot of volunteers. Each therapy session costs the center an estimated $125. The center says it can't charge families more than $35 per session because many of them already face huge medical bills.
