New Mexico  Happenings  
New Mexico Center of Therapeutic Riding (NMCTR) is honored to be the first organization in the entire state of New Mexico to receive EQUUS Messenger Status, especially considering that our state boasts one horse for every 12 people!  Best of all it means NMCTR is eligible to apply and receive yearly grants through this wonderful foundation.

Thank you, EQUUS  Foundation, for helping us to impact the lives of our inspiring riders and gentle equines.  At NMCTR, we witness the magic of the horse human bond every day. Our program participants benefit from riding and caring for our equine friends in significant ways. Emotional and cognitive benefits include a range of skills: building trust, empathy, patience, and concentration, as well as improving expressive skills, language skills, confidence, problem solving, decision making and following directions. Physical benefits include eye-hand coordination, kinesthetic awareness, muscle control, sensory integration, balance, dexterity, respiratory and postural control, and muscle strength and tone. We take special care of our horses, and they are lavished with love and gratitude by our students each day for their great contributions to our program.

Save the date, Wednesday, October 25th, and join NMCTR for a memorable evening of great food, lively music, and artful dancing at the Taste of Spain Fundraising Night. Click here for details.

Join Loving Thunder Therapeutic Riding, a PATH Intl. Premier Accredited Center in Rio Rancho, NM, on November 5, 2 to 5 p.m. at the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta Golf and Event Center for a fundraiser. Click here for details.
