TRI was founded in 1973 to provide riding therapy for the disabled. The riding therapy program contains six learning components: mounting, warm up, lesson, exercise, games and dismounting. Riders learn basic skills by learning to ride a horse. Students benefit from physical activity, mental stimulation, extended communication opportunities and new peer relationships. The experiences carry over into the students� every day activities by giving them confidence to try new challenging experiences.

TRI�s classes are held in the mornings and evenings. Riders are scheduled for one class per week for sessions of 5-7 weeks during the spring, summer and fall. Group lessons are 45 minutes with 2-3 students per class and private lessons are 30 minutes. *Length of lesson time is determined by each student�s ability.
