Horse Boarding, Lessons, Raising & Training Miniature Donkeys for Therapy, Pleasure & Show
Mane Encounters, EAL and EAP
Welcome to Trilogy Farm,
Horsepower, & More!
Jim and I began Trilogy Farm as a horse training and breeding, raising, selling enterprise in 1985. We successfully trained horses for our clients and bred and raised purebred and then part-bred Arabians of our own, while our 4 boys participated in running of the farm.
In 2018, we re-directed our efforts to boarding and lessons, but wanted to do more for our community. We realized that our miniature donkeys & gentle horses, plus a suitable environment, were a perfect fit for Equine Assisted Therapy.
In 2021, "Mane Encounters" was born, our Equine Assisted Learning & Equine Assisted Psychotherapy Program for Veterans, their families and anyone in need of our services. Scroll down for more information. Anyone interested in participating in our program can contact us below.
In 2018 we expanded & "downsized" our equine endeavors to include raising & training registered & non-registered Mediterranean Miniature Donkeys for pleasure, show & therapy.
These adorable little equines are friendly, gentle, playful & delightful. They are wonderful companions & hard workers when trained to drive, carry small passengers or packs or compete over obstacles. Further, they are perfect for Equine Assisted Therapy and Psychotherapy, especially for children or adults that prefer their small size to that of a full grown horse.
Meet our miniature "girls." Kristina & Jewel(foal). Mother & daughter arrived at Trilogy in July, 2018. They are our foundation breeding stock.
Our New Horse arrived in 2021
Meet Pearl. She is a 16yr old Kentucky Mountain Horse. She is very gentle, well-trained, and destined to be Mary's mount in the Wyoming County Mounted Division in 2022.
Pearl is also used in our lesson program and in Mane Encounters. She is well suited for therapy because of her sweet disposition & sensitive nature.
Sundancer, below, is our Haflinger cross mare that we bought in 2019. She is now 4 years old. Gannon rides & trains her. She is also in our Mane Encounters program.

Family fun with donkeys at Trilogy Farm this past fall.
Kristina, Jewel, Pomegranate & Jubilee have all learned to drive now.
These lovely ladies are half sisters & are destined to be a driving pair when they mature this year.
With Equine Assisted Learning, we use horses & miniature donkeys to help people learn techniques for dealing with stress. We assist them in developing healthy coping behaviors & empowering life skills.
Horses & donkeys help us gain self-confidence, self-awareness & provide a safe, non judgmental atmosphere.
Equine Assisted Psychotherapy utilizes a licensed mental health counselor in an equine psychotherapy session. These sessions go a step further & help identify unhelpful subconscious issues & develop strategies to work through them.
Slippery Pot Pie
This is "Pie," a yearling jack we were fortunate to purchase in 2021 form Copper Star Farm in PA. He is our new herd sire.
His pedigree compliments our jennys' lineage,
With a friendly, gentle disposition, great confirmation and gait, he is destined to produce lovely foals from our jennys.
He is presently in training for driving and is part of our Mane Encounters Program.
He will be with us at Equifest, Mar 19,20, at the Erie Co. Fair Grounds, where we will be promoting Mane Encounters.
Horsepower & More!
In addition to our passion for living horsepower, we are also passionate about helping other business owners obtain their ERC (Employee Retention Credit).
This program, created by the CARES ACT, refunds business owners with W2 employees up to $26,000 per employee who was kept on the payroll during Covid. Businesses with One to 500 employees are eligible to apply.
This includes farms, horse facilities, non-profits, restauraunts, construction, medical, day care, and many more business categories.
My website is: taxrebatespecialists.com/trilogyfarm
There is a wealth of information on this site about the ERC. This is also where a business owner can pre-qualify to see how much they may be eligible for and to apply for their tax credit.
This program helps your community by infusing it with thousands of dollars for every rebate check processed.
I have assisted many organizations in obtaining their tax rebate, some of which were told they did not qualify, based on out-dated information. I helped them and I'd be delighted to help you.
Please contact me on my cell or by email regarding this valuable program.
