«Return to News ListingGretchen Elise Dickens Fund


March 26, 2021 – 

The New Mexico Center for Therapeutic Riding has become the beneficiary for the Gretchen Elise Dickens Fund. Gretchen Dickens was an avid horsewoman that unfortunately passed away in 2003 at age 19 from cancer. Her family set up a small fund, the Gretchen Elise Dickens Fund at the Santa Fe Community Foundation, that will now benefit NMCTR. Each year the fund will provide a scholarship to help sponsor those in financial need to be able to participate in the therapeutic riding program. 

A huge THANK YOU to the Dickens family for believing in our mission and allowing us to honor your daughter through equine assisted services.
