No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

It takes a lot to care for our horses. On average, it costs over $5,000 a year per horse to cover basic needs like hay, grain, vet, and farrier visits.


Because of generous supporters in the community, TROT  has been able to provide numerous scholarships and keep program fees low for our families and partners. 

Always accepting new or lightly used office, barn, and property items. Every item makes a difference.

TROT is a registered charitable nonprofit organization. Please consider making a tax-deductible state tax credit contribution.

Leaving your legacy at TROT will give more children, adults, and military veterans of all abilities the opportunity to live life without barriers for many generations to come.

Sponsor an event

There are many opportunities throughout the year to be a partner of TROT. Event sponsorships are a great way for your business to make a meaningful impact in the community by helping TROT achieve our fundraising goals. Our events would not be possible without the amazing support of the local businesses who donate valuable products, services, and most important, their time. 

Sponsor A Horse
