Please join us on November 6th at Kinder Farm Park in Millersville, MD for our 2nd Annual Maryland Therapeutic Riding Pony Trot! We are excited to have the race in person this year and can't wait to see you! All proceeds from the Maryland Therapeutic Riding Pony Trot will benefit Maryland Therapeutic Riding (MTR), an award winning therapeutic horseback riding center that has served participants throughout the state of Maryland since 1996.
$35 through 10/22/2021
Registrants will receive a unisex t-shirt. Sizes and availability of race shirts cannot be guaranteed after October 6th.
*Entry fees are non-refundable.
VIRTUAL RACE OPTION
We will still offer a virtual race option for non local participants or those who cannot make it on race day. Virtual Registrants will run (or walk) the race distance at any location they choose (treadmill, neighborhood, local park) on the weekend of November 6th and November 7th. If you are participating in the 5K and would like to be listed in the results make sure you are tracking your time and distance. You can do so with a watch or running app (example: Garmin watch, Strava App). Make sure you run the whole distance (3.1 Miles for a 5K) - you don't want to do all that work and come up short. You will then be able to report your time and share photos (instructions will be provided in pre race email). Results will be automatically updated as race times come in.

Maryland Therapeutic Riding (MTR) is an award winning therapeutic horseback riding center that has served participants throughout the state of Maryland since 1996. Our mission is to improve the quality of life of children, adults, active military and veterans by connecting humans and horses in a healing environment. The services offered here at MTR address a wide range of physical, cognitive and emotional challenges and give our participants hope through their partnership with our incredible herd of horses, therapists, instructors and volunteers.
We also understand that special needs families often have higher than average medical expenses, therefore we offer our services at only 20% of the actual cost to us to provide them. This means that we must fundraise 80% of the cost. We rely heavily on our community of supporters and also on events, such as this one, to allow us to continue our mission to provide equine-assisted activities and therapies to the special needs community!
