We hope you come and enjoy a beautiful and fun run or walk this morning, all benefit to the Marion Therapeutic Riding Association. Our mission: to offer the miraculous benefits of therapeutic horseback riding to persons of all ages and capabilities that are physically, mentally or emotionally challenged. Serving the heart of Florida since 1985, Marion Therapeutic Riding Association (MTRA) is a PATH Premier Accredited organization. We have a waiting list of handicapped clients that want to participate in our program.
In the early 1990s, the former canal lands were established as the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway as they exist today. The trails, playground and other amenities are maintained through a cooperative partnership between the Office of Greenways and Trails and the Marion County Parks and Recreation department. The trails through nature are smooth and compatible with the natural beauty that Florida is famous for.
