The Mainstreamers

The Thorncroft Mainstreamers are an equestrian drill team consisting of riders with and without disabilities.

They work and ride together, stewarding collaborate performances and mutual understanding. As the skill of each rider improves, their lives are also enriched by the experience.

Founded in 1986, our Mainstreamers have performed in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Delaware, and have given demonstrations of their precision drills at a number of esteemed shows including the Devon Horse Show, Dressage at Devon, Ludwigs Corner Horse Show, and The Radnor Hunt Concours d’Elegance.


Please check our social media pages and website for more information on the next tryouts, or contact Kersten Hoerner, Lead Instructor and Mainstreamers Coach, at 610-644-1963.
