The Thorncroft Mainstreamers are a ten member team consisting of riders with and without disabilities, ranging in age from ten to fifteen. They work and ride together, encouraging proficient performances and mutual understanding. As the skill of each rider improves, their lives are also enriched by the experience.
When these riders come together and perform their musical drill on horseback you feel a magic in the air, a magic created by The Thorncroft Mainstreamers, a group of ten riders of varying abilities. The team, founded in 1986, has performed in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Delaware, sharing with their audiences an extraordinary ability which goes beyond their riding skills. The Team is an example of growing and sharing lives together, of accomplishing major goals others thought impossible.
They are a unique team of riders with wonderful talents. They have given demonstrations of their precision drills at the Devon Horse Show, Dressage at Devon, the Belmont Horse Fair, the A-rated horse show at the Sussex County Fair, the Penn State University Agricultural “Ag” Days, the Lancaster County Fair and the NARHA/DELTA National Convention held in Gladstone NJ.
Thorncroft is gearing up to hold try outs for the 2016 Mainstreamers team soon- check back for more information!
