Give the Gift of a LIFT
The current lift system on site has its limitations. Recent research has uncovered a new lift system that can make transfers from a wheelchair to horse and back again almost effortless! Thus, protecting the backs of our equines and volunteers, while empowering greater freedom for our clients.
Please consider joining the effort to fundraise to install at least one location for the SureHands lift system. Even a small $5 donation can add up quickly towards the goal of $9,000!
Donations can be mailed to the following address:
Therapeutic & Recreational Riding Center, Inc.

Glenwood, MD 21738

The Therapeutic and Recreational Riding Center, the only in Central Maryland’s Howard County, is ‘Raising the Roof’ on the area’s first indoor therapy arena that will serve a growing number of youth participants with Sensory Processing Disorders (SPDs) such as Autism, ADD/ADHD and others.This new indoor arena is designed to serve a growing number of children and youth seeking alternative therapies and create the first in Maryland with specifically tailored sensory therapeutic interventions by physical, occupational and speech therapists that minimize distractions and environmental stimulations for children with SPDs. Experts agree on the clear benefits of riding for children with SPDs.The indoor arena will have specialized features for therapy students, will be heated in winter and have a sprinkler system for dust control.
Finish Line Youth Foundation is a lead sponsor for the event and has offered a challenge matching grant of $75,000 to Raise the Roof on this new arena. Check out this initiative at https://www.trrcmd.org/raise-the-roof
