Our Mission/How we are involved with horses:
Founded in 1939 as a chapter of the Junior Cavalry of America, NCMT's mission is to to build leadership, responsibility and confidence in youth through sound horsemanship and to enrich the lives of individuals with special needs through equine assisted activities. We provide a comprehensive, hands-on learning experience that emphasizes teamwork and follows a proprietary curriculum focused on horsemanship, riding, and equine care instruction. Additionally, our "Super Troopers" therapeutic riding and equine care program serves children and adults with special needs.
