During the national health crisis Trinity Farm's doors are closed but our mission to improve the quality of life for our community continues! We've connected with out participants through Facebook LIVE story time reading with ponies, virtual barn tours, educational virtual-learning, safe distance volunteering, and miniature horse visits to nursing residents!
Without revenue from the lesson program to pay for the essential care for our therapy horses times have been tough. Trinity Farm has been providing therapeutic riding services to the community for a decade and it is critical that we raise funds for our nonprofit and horses to survive.
Hope is on the horizon! We will be announcing the restart of our riding program next week. Steps have to be taken to protect our riders, families, volunteers and staff and we appreciate the wiliness and encouragement we have received from the whole Trinity Farm family respecting the State of Ohio, CDC and PATH International guidelines for reopening. We have had many inquiries from eager students who want to get back in the barn and we're just as excited at the prospect of seeing our riders soon!

Did you know that it truly takes a special animal to be a therapy horse? What do we look for in a horse or pony? ...Patience, strength and a sense of humor!

The national average for maximum amount of time a horse participates in a therapeutic riding program is about 5 years. Some may stay longer, most- shorter. Our skilled instructors, farrier and veterinarian frequently assess the horse's emotional & physical health to determine when it is time to retire a horse from Trinity Farm. Dude was the very first therapy horse selected for Trinity Farm and joined the program in January of 2010.
The oldest horse to live at Trinity Farm was a quarter horse named Sadie. She lived to be 32 years old.
The youngest horse to join our herd is a miniature horse named Thunder. He was selected to be trained as a traveling therapy mini, which begins early in life. He has traveled to numerous nursing homes and residential communities, such as The Briarwood & Hattie Larlham. He joined us in 2010.
Based on the facts listed with each photo, can you figure out who is the tallest therapy horse and who is the smallest? How about the oldest and the youngest?
One of the best ways to support Trinity Farm Therapeutic Equestrian Center and our mission is to sponsor one of our fabulous horses. Equine assisted activities and therapeutic riding are a wonderfully effective tool, but it comes at a significant cost. Along with providing barn space and staff to look after the animals, each horse requires a lot of grain & hay, regular visits from the veterinarian, annual dental work and the services of our farrier. Basic care and feeding of a horse costs us over $8,000 per year, per horse. A Horse Sponsorship is a great way for you to make a meaningful contribution.
