Review for North Carolina Therapeutic Riding Center, Inc., Mebane, NC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

NCTRC is a miraculous place! Dedicated volunteers and staff consistenly welcome and work with adults and children of all abilities. Using horses as a "therapy tool" they guide and assist their clients (and clients' familes) in their quest for independence and confidence.

The facility, Clearwinds Farm, is a dream location! They have a farmhouse that serves as office and "hotel " and classroom for workshops and visitors. They have a huge covered arena and outdoor arena. This allows them to work in most any weather. There are beautiful rolling pastures and lots of farm animals to enjoy.
The programs are year round with all abilities camps in the summer in addition to therapy sessions.
NCTRC hosts teaching seminars and certification classes for therapeutic riding instructors. They also work with nearby universities on research projects to better understand the impact and effectiveness of hippotherapy.
This organization has evolved over many years into a powerful service group with a major impact!

I would supply them with resources to expand the programs they currently have in place and realize the plans and the vision they have for the future.

Role:  Donor & As a Donor, I try to support NCTRC as often as I can.
