Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
To enhance the lives of individuals with special needs through equine-assisted activities.
Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation): Public ServiceOur organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.
Our organization conducts Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT) in accordance with the EQUUS Foundation Guidelines on Qualifications of Organizations Conducting Equine-Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT).
Our organization provides community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses.
100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.
Our organization conducts its horse-related programs at one facility.
Therapeutic Riding Center VolunteersMinimum Age: 14GMTRC has many openings for volunteers to assist with our programs, help care for our horses, and more! A majority of our openings are recurring needs that require volunteers to commit to a set time for 1-2 hours weekly for the duration of a session (6-8 weeks), however we do have some opportunities for volunteers who have more irregular availability to come in as substitute or alternate volunteers, or help with facilities maintenance, event committees, etc. If you enjoy working with horses and find happiness in helping others, come volunteer with us!
Horse AdoptionsWe need caring people or organizations to adopt each of our special horses through donation to support their care and feeding costs.
Smartpak And Dover Saddlery Gift CardsWe frequently order items from Smartpak and occasionally from Dover Saddlery, so gift cards for these tack supply stores are always appreciated!
Tree ServicesMany of the trees on our property are old and need to be taken down. We also need new trees planted along our trails to provide shade to our horses and riders during lessons. If you have a source to complete these services or can provide funds for this project, please contact us!
Fly Spray And Hoof DressingWe regularly go through gallon jugs of Farnam Bronco E Fly Spray and Fiebing’s Hoof Dressing and would be very happy to have a generous donor re-stock our supply.
Run-In ShedsWe are in need of run-in sheds in our pastures to help shelter our horses during inclement weather. If you would be willing and able to build or purchase these for us our horses would surely thank you!
Office SuppliesWe use lots of printer/copy paper and ink cartridges and would happily accept gift cards to Staples for their purchase.
Printing CostsIf you have a source or can donate funds to cover the printing expenses for GMTRC brochures, flyers, and rider forms, please contact us!
HelmetsWe are often in need of new ASTM/SEI certified riding helmets in various sizes for use by our participants. Our helmets must be replaced every 5 years so we routinely rotate our current helmets for new ones. Unfortunately, we cannot accept used helmets as we are unable to use them in our programs and tack shops will not typically consign used helmets due to safety regulations.
