Important Announcement

There are some very big changes taking place at Therapeutic Riding of the Ozarks (TRO). TRO will be discontinued as an agency of the Council of Churches of the Ozarks (CCO) at the conclusion of the fall session. CCO Board of Directors made the decision based on the financial sustainability of CCO programs.

It saddens us to be sharing this news, but we are excited to tell you that we are working very hard to re-establish the program as its own organization or through an established organization within the community. For more information and to find out how you can help maintain these services for children and adults with disabilities living in the Ozarks, please contact TRO Director Kent Crumpley at 862-3586 ext. 231 or
