We currently have 10 Therapeutic horses in our herd. Our horses are the backbone of our program and are one in a million! They have been through training to be able to accommodate all types of students.

It costs us about $1200 a horse per year ($700 for a miniature) for routine maintenance and care! Please pick your favorite horse and open your heart to something special.

Our full sponsors ($1200 for a full sized horse or $700 for a miniature) will get an engraved name tag with sponsors name on the halter, mentioned under their horses name on the website, and name plate on their horse’s stall. Half year sponsors ($600) will get mentioned on the website and an engraved halter tag.

If you are interested in Sponsoring a horse please give us a call at (270)777-3600 or email us at info@nbtr-bg.org

Our motto is “Happy, healthy, sound and well-trained horses are the keys to success in Therapeutic Riding.”
