June 15, 2018 – 

New Mexico Center for Therapeutic Riding was awarded a $2000 grant from the New Mexico Children’s Foundation. New Mexico Children’s Foundation is unique. It is a visionary, grassroots organization that funds small non-profit children’s organizations throughout New Mexico. Organizations served through the foundation’s funding come in all shapes, sizes and ethnicities. The foundation’s core belief is that most children have a wide range of under-served needs. The foundation’s goal is to provide meaningful grants to serve as many of those needs as possible.

NMCTR applied for this grant to be able to assist the funding of the School Outreach Program. The program will provide therapeutic horseback riding lessons at no cost to eight classes from Santa Fe Public Schools (Aspen Community Magnet, El Dorado Community School, and Nina Otero) and the New Mexico School for the Deaf. Each class will include 6 to 12 children with special needs. For the enhanced program, NMCF Funds will be used to provide two $1,000 scholarships.

Thank You New Mexico Children’s Foundation!
