2020: RCTRC's Response to COVID
We have slowly resumed limited programming. There are several restrictions based upon the social distancing suggestions made by the CDC.
RCTRC is a 501 (c) 3 tax-exempt, non-profit organization, dedicated to the well being of children and adults through equine assisted therapy and activities.
We do receive some support from community based organizations, we do charge fees for service and have sponsorships available.
We provide animal assisted therapy, occupational therapy and recreational therapy services to children and adults with disabilities. Therapeutic activities are designed to assist people to reach independence, as well as obtain a quality of life with enjoyment, confidence, and self-fulfillment.
We strive to provide safe, consistent and quality services to children and adults with disabilities, illness, and/or challenging behavior.

Our programs are dependent upon donations and lesson fees. Since we began, we have survived on grants, program fees, donated equipment, facilities, as well as community donations and much physical labor support.
Please help us to further our services and progam offerings through donations that can be designated for your preferences -

Volunteers are fundamental to our success! If we didn’t have them, we’d have no programs. Each applies and is trained through a volunteer training program and help immensely in the day to day operation - assisting in training, tacking up, side walking, leading, etc.
Our volunteer corp is to be envied and we are very thankful.
