About Us

Our History

Betty Lou Townley and Linden Moore founded the Therapeutic Riding Institute in 1973 to improve the health and lives of children and adults with disabilities. TRI was one of the first in our region, to offer equine-assisted services to people with disabilities.

Through the years, this volunteer-driven community service group has touched thousands of lives in the Miami Valley.  In the fall of 2018, we launched a Capital Campaign to purchase a horse farm in Spring Valley. This has been a long-held dream of TRI; we moved in June of 2019.
