The New Mexico Center for Therapeutic Riding's (NMCTR) mission is to expand and enrich the lives of children, youth, and adults with special needs through equine-assisted services. NMCTR provides instruction in riding and horsemanship with the goal of expanding the cognitive, physical, emotional and social skills and well-being of individuals with special needs. Students of all ages and abilities participate in our program with the ultimate goal of learning to ride as independently as possible, gaining enhanced self-confidence from their accomplishments.

Every year, NMCTR serves over 150 participants with the assistance of 9 horses, 2 PATH Intl Certified Riding Instructors, and over 100 volunteers!
