The 3rd Annual Cherokee Chase Trail Run


01Come and join us for this unique trail race through the beautiful Cherokee Ridge Horse Farm. The course will take you through pastures, woodlands trails, and even a few small hills. This is a great trail race for both beginners and more experienced trail runners. The course is 10k (2 loops) or 5k (1 loop).

As always we have good food, prizes and good company.  The proceeds go directly to ATRO giving the budget a much needed boost.

If you do not wish to run the race, please consider volunteering your time on race day. Horse riders and their horses are welcome as course marshals. There are many jobs to be done!

Sponsorship is a big part of any event. If you have or work for a business that is able to sponsor  us please contact Liz or Emily at ATRO for details.

We hope to see you out there on race day!

Thank you for a successful Family Fun Day!


Thank you to all that assisted "ATRO" Acadiana Therapeutic Riding Organization Family Fun Day 2013. Our Family Fun Day was this last Saturday at Lafayette's "Cabbage Patch" on the side of Blackham. The day was magical with all the great kids, families, volunteers, sponsors, animals, crafts, food, drinks, and activities. We certainly learned this year that next year we will position our booths closer on the property to allow shorter distance between booths. We were very blessed with sun shine but quite a few wished for cooler weather or overcast. I have to say that ATRO Family Fun Day 2013 was a BIG success! It was only successful because you were involved! I hope you realize how important you were to help this event be such a success. We hope you will consider attending and assisting us again next year. Please view the attached pictures and website to see just what ATRO is all about. Just as the thank you note states- "Because of good-hearted people like you, this world is a nicer place." I truly hope that all the good you do comes back to you 100 fold. Thank you again for your support on behalf of myself, ATRO students, parents, staff and volunteers.

Thank you to all of our sponsors:
