The Loving Kind

On a small farm in rural Maryland, a burgeoning new technique in physical therapy is rapidly gaining admirers. The Loving Kind takes you there to discover the wonders of hippotherapy; a once experimental, but increasingly mainstream form of therapy involving horses.

We meet the owner of the farm and her tireless staff of handlers and therapists, as well as some very special patients who have made tremendous strides both physically and mentally. We meet a doctor specializing in child degenerative diseases who firmly supports the advent of hippo therapy, and we talk to a member of the Veteran's Administration to see how this particular therapy has been used effectively with our veterans from Iraq and Afghanistan.

The Loving Kind is a simple and moving story of horses helping people in need and the many lives that are affected.

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.

Spring-Summer


LIGHTNING AND THUNDER DO 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.
