The Northern Virginia Therapeutic Riding Program (NVTRP) is a non-profit organization dedicated to enriching the lives of children and adults with disabilities, youth-at-risk, and recovering military service personnel and their families through the challenging, physically-active sport of horseback riding.
Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation): Public Service
Our organization operates programs involved with providing equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) using certified instructors for individuals with special needs.Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.
