Getting your Trinity Audio player ready...

Therapeutic Riding of Tryon, better known in the community as TROT, started its Spring Session this past week. TROT has been a staple in the community since 2004 working to provide equine-assisted activities to adults and children with physical, developmental, and cognitive disabilities in a safe, friendly, and supportive environment. A huge thank you to TROT’s students, volunteers, volunteer horses, and staff that make this program a possibility. We are looking forward to a great year! 


Are you interested in getting involved with the TROT program? TROT is currently seeking horse volunteers to assist with the program.
