TROTR is a nonprofit, volunteer-based organization dedicated to
assisting retired racing horses learn new careers, as well as caring
for abused or abandoned
horses and finding them new, loving homes.
Our adventure began with the
purchase of a small ranch just south of Woodland, CA. Our passion has
grown to include Draft horses, Mustangs, Standardbreds, Mini's and one
very lovable little Donkey.
We also have programs that include Therapeutic Riding and school and
Therapeutic horse riding is a growing and widely-accepted treatment for
rehabilitating people with a range of
physical, mental, and emotional disabilities. Riders experience
increased self-confidence and improvement in strength, balance,
coordination, attention span, language and social skills.
We hold regular safety training courses for new volunteers year round
and offer a very special summer camp that is sure to leave a life long
impression on the horse lover in your family.
With the downturn in the economy and the rising costs of gasoline or
energy, TROTR needs your help!
Unfortunately, in difficult economic times, animals are often the first
to suffer. Equines (horses, ponies, minis, donkeys and mules)
especially are at risk because of their specific feeding and healthcare
needs, they are expensive animals to maintain. Many are being abandoned
or even given away, often to unscrupulous people posing as buyers but
looking for cheap or free horses to take to slaughter houses in Mexico,
where they are killed through inhumane methods.
TROTR needs YOUR help now.
We remain committed to helping our equine friends and working with other rescues,
BUT WE CANNOT DO IT WITHOUT YOUR SUPPORT!
