The Therapeutic Riding Equestrian Center is an outgrowth of Therapeutic Riding of Erie County (TREC), a non-profit organization that has been committed to equine-assisted recreational therapy since 1981. The Therapeutic Riding Equestrian Center is located in Fairview, PA at a first class facility designed to create a friendly environment for learning and improving the physical, emotional and social well being of our clients.
We offer small classes designed for personalized attention, grouping students by skill level and age wherever possible. We also offer advanced classes and private lessons.
Our goal is simple: create an environment and opportunity for the client to enjoy themselves while benefiting from the therapy provided through equine-assisted activities.
We encourage you to view this site and learn about the many benefits of equine-assisted therapy. We also encourage you to visit our facility and watch a class in session. I think you’ll be both amazed and impressed with how well the client responds to both the horse and our certified instructors.
Working in partnership with the community, TREC enriches the
total well-being of eligible individuals by providing an engaged
connection to horses through supervised equine-assisted programs.
