Celebrating its 77th year, New Canaan Mounted Troop (NCMT) is a non-profit organization that provides the most comprehensive educational Full Horsemanship and Equine Care Programs for youth in Fairfield County.  In 2012, NCMT launched the Super Troopers Therapeutic Program to serve children and adults with special needs. .
NCMT Therapeutic Program Coordinator, Caroleigh Evarts says: “Our 8-week long spring session which started April 2, offers adaptive riding and equine care classes. We work with children and adults from individual families, clients of STAR, Lighting the Way, New Canaan Public School, and River House. In 2016, we serviced 80 students in over 300 lessons.
NCMT Executive Director, Sara Tucker says: “New Canaan Mounted Troop is grateful and excited for the derby-themed cocktail party at L’Armoire. What a generous occasion and fabulous way to bring community awareness to our programs. There are over 100 children in the youth Troop program. Since all of our horses and ponies are donated, fundraisers such as this help us achieve our mission of enriching the lives of youth and individuals with special needs by giving these animals a second chance. We look forward to the event.”
