You Can Make a Difference

 

For the past 40 years, TRI has been  one of Ohio’s premier therapeutic riding centers serving youth and adults with disabilities. We are located in Springboro, just off Route 75 and we invite you to join our team.

New to TRI in 2014:

Volunteer Workshops

In 2017, we will continue offering workshops to all of our volunteers. Not every volunteer that comes to our farm has experience with horses, but we know that some of you want to learn! In addition to the opportunities to learn more about the horses, we’ll also be offering workshops that will build the Side Helpers skills to help their students.  At TRI, we are committed to improving the skills of our invaluable volunteer corp. We hope you’ll join us!

Our next workshop will tie into our newest program, Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy, but is useful in everyone’s every day life as well! We invite all of our current volunteers to join us on August 26th for a Youth Mental Health First Aid Training put on by the Montgomery County ADAMHS Board! Here you will learn useful information on how to identify signs that a youth is experiencing a mental health challenge and how to help them in a crisis situation. Three of your TRI Instructors are already certified in this, and believe it will be a great benefit for our volunteers as well. Registration will open in July!

Stay tuned for more information about another workshop with Parelli Instructor, Tom Pompei, that will be held in November!

Is there something you would like to learn more about? Let us know and we’ll do our best to get it on the calendar in 2017.
