Three horses are recovering from stab wounds suffered at the stables of a Reston non-profit.

The Spirit Open Equestrian Program on Centerville Road near Frying Pan Park provides riding instruction, primarily for young children with serious cognitive and physical disabilities.

A stable volunteer tells WAMU that the barn owner found the horses suffering from what she calls "deep gashes in their sides" when she went to feed them yesterday morning.

Fairfax County police say while the wounds are serious, they do not appear to be life threatening.

Anyone with information is asked to call the police or Crimesolvers.
