Cancellations Due to Weather


Winter - TRRC FOLLOWS THE SNOW CLOSING POLICY OF THE HOWARD COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM.  If you are unsure, check the office answering machine for updated messages before heading out - 410-489-5100.

 We try to notify everyone by email, robocall and messages on the office phone. Please check your phone, your email or your cell phone before calling us about closings.


Spring-Summer


LIGHTNING AND THUNDER CLOSE US DOWN.   

The Director monitors the National Weather Service. At the first sound of thunder or sight of lightning, ALL riders will dismount and horses will be stabled. The National Weather Service recommends staying inside for at least 15-30 minutes after the last thunderclap.  This means that a full half hour is needed before allowing riders to get back on their horses. Therapy sessions will continue in the therapy room and riding lessons will continue in the rider support building or main barn aisle. If it appears that the storm will not pass, all lessons will be canceled.

We now have a Liberal Leave Policy for those who choose not to ride in warmer weather. 

TRRC depends on donations.  Donating through our secure server is fast and easy. We use GiveDirect,  a non-profit service to process credit card transactions. No fee is taken out of  your gift. TRRC   gets 100%.  GiveDirect is the name that will appear on your statement.




TRRC Needs your support more than ever right now.   We offer many ways to give to TRRC on our “What You Can Do” list. This year we are grateful for Amazon.Smile! When you make a purchase on Amazon, search for Amazon.Smile before you buy. Choose TRRC as your charity, and then on shop and purchase. We will receive .o5 percent of your purchase.

One of our goals for the coming year is to re-surface the upper riding arena with a rubber crumb and sand mixture that will ease the impact on our equine’s legs and keep them healthy. This will cost $14,000, so every penny you contribute will be appreciated! For details, click on Upper Arena Needs Your Help.docx
