CARTERSVILLE, Ga. — Lessons have been canceled at a Cartersville horse therapy barn after a fire on the property, according to a post on the company's Facebook page. 

Beyond Limits Therapeutic Riding Inc. said its barn caught fire Thursday night, and due to repairs Friday, lessons would be closed and "probably next week as well."

"We absolutely loved our barn and everything in it, but it can be replaced over time 💕 More info will be available soon, but I wanted to go ahead and let everyone know the update. I am not posting pictures as it is quite devastating and absolutely heartbreaking," a post-read in part.
