90 days later, the sprightly, bright eyed gelding trots up to the fence to eagerly greet his new client. 

The adopted therapy horses at TROT are retired and rescued horses. These horses need special feed, and special care.  All of which costs money.  Your donation is truly appreciated in helping this unique program continue while benefiting those in need of therapy and also horses in need of a home where they can receive care and a new purpose in life.

Due to insurance regulations, TROT can only take horses that are sound, and well trained.  Horses in poor condition can only be taken if the donor is willing to cover the costs of getting the horse back in sound condition.  All rehabilitation efforts at TROT are overseen by a licensed veterinarian.  We cannot accept horses with vision problems, or significant behavior problems.
