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.



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. 

Another way to support TRRC is to donate a vehicle. We receive the proceeds, and you get a tax break. Click on the Vehicle Donations box below to support TRRC.

TRRC Depends on Your Donations to support our staff, clients, and horses.
