Thanks to the Riding To The Top Rider Scholarship Fund, three year old Brooklynn started riding with RTT last year and has made significant gains in both speech and motor functions.
“She has completely blossomed….her speech has improved, her posture is 100% better and she is much more friendly.”
Riding To the Top Therapeutic Riding Center is a private non-profit founded and built by generous volunteers and donors. Riding To The Top fees are kept as low as possible to provide access for the greatest number of riders. RTT receives no federal, state or municipal funds. The majority of our annual operating budget is supported by contributions made to our Annual Fund by individuals, corporations and foundations. A variety of special events are held throughout the year to increase awareness and raise funds for RTT’s services.
RIDER SCHOLARSHIP FUND
Since 1993, RTT has provided more than $250,000 in rider scholarships helping thousands of children and adults with disabilities experience the healing power of horses. Generous donors make it possible for RTT to keep lesson fees affordable and accessible to all eligible clients.
Horses are vital members of our team at Riding To The Top and keeping our horses healthy, happy and fit is essential for our clients to achieve their goals—it is also expensive. Annual “well care” for our herd (vaccinations, farrier, dental, feed, hay, etc.) averages $3,000 per horse. In-kind goods and services and donations help us meet these expenses.

“Many things have changed since I used to volunteer, more staff, the (new) arena and offices... I still feel the philosophy remains the same, assisting the horses to assist the clients to improve their lives. I am glad to support this great organization.”
