Fun Facts:

The national average for maximum amount of time a horse participates in a therapeutic riding program is about 5 years. Some may stay longer, some shorter. Skilled farm managers and veterinarians frequently assess the horse's willingness and physical ability to determine when it is time to retire a horse from Trinity Farm.

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.

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?

Horse Sponsorship

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. Lesson fees only cover a small fraction of these costs. A Horse Sponsorship is a great way for you to make a meaningful contribution.
