The Greater New Orleans Therapeutic Riding Center is a non-profit organization that was founded to help provide a fun and therapeutic experience for individuals with physical, emotional and learning disabilities. GNOTRC is a Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH International) member operating center.

For individuals with disabilities, equine-assisted activities have been shown to improve muscle tone, balance, posture, coordination, motor development as well as emotional well-being. And it's fun!

To see individuals with disabilities ride horses is truly an unforgetable experience. Not only do they sit taller and smile more, they extend their dreams beyond the confines of their disability, into new, unexplored worlds. Riding exersizes the spirit as well as the body.

You can make a difference in the lives of these individuals by becoming involved with the GNOTRC and with PATH Insternational. The center is always in need of volunteers, riders, instructors, therapists, and horses. We also need financial sponsors for our riders and horses, and for the necessary equipment and feed.

All contributions to the center are tax deductible.
