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.


Primary Focus involving horses (Horse Welfare, Public Service, Sport & Recreation):  Public Service

Our organization is directly responsible for the care and shelter of horses.

Our organization conducts Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies (EAAT) programs with instructors, specialists, counselors, trainers and/or facilitators who have certified training for their scope of practice applicable to the people participating in the programs and specific to the program offerings - serving as staff (full-time or part-time), as independent contractors, and/or as service providers, serving in a volunteer capacity, or accompanying clients when participating in our programs.

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.
