COVID-19 Updates

Temporary Closure

The coronavirus pandemic has thrust our community into unknown territory. We recognize that many in our community have faced both health and economic impacts. At Cincinnati Therapeutic Riding and Horsemanship, we have taken necessary precautions to keep our participants, employees, and horses safe. All programming has been temporarily placed on hold. Our core staff remains on duty as the care of the herd remains our top priority at this time.

As we continue to monitor the developments around  COVID-19 to determine a prudent date to reopen, you can refer to the following resources to learn more:
