OVERVIEW OF NCMT

New Canaan Mounted Troop, Inc. (“NCMT”) is a non-profit 501(c)(3) educational and charitable youth organization.  Founded in 1939 by Margaret Cabell Self, NCMT is the last remaining unit of the Junior Cavalry of America. Our mission statement is to build leadership, responsibility and confidence in youth through sound horsemanship. Children ages 7 & up are enrolled in a 10-month-long program Full Cadet Program that offers a rich curriculum in equine care, hunt-seat riding, and showmanship. Summer Camp and Adult Riding Programs are also offered. 

Most horses and ponies are owned by NCMT, and all are shared amongst our riders.  What makes NCMT unique is that it relies primarily on donated horses for its instruction program.  The majority of our horses and ponies have come to us because either their owners could no longer care for them, or they are retiring from respectable show careers.  Our horses and ponies receive a second lease on life, as teachers, to our cadets.  Captain Hailey Miller recently described NCMT as
“Giving Horses A Second Chance So Kids Can Have A First.”

Mission Statement

New Canaan Mounted Troop, Inc. (NCMT) is devoted to building leadership, responsibility and confidence in youth through sound horsemanship. It provides a comprehensive, hands-on learning experience that emphasizes teamwork and follows a curriculum focused on horsemanship and equine care instruction. All activities are conducted in a family atmosphere that encourages participation in community service, a feature rooted in the history of the organization.

The Facility

NCMT has a new, state-of-the-art facility featuring a 140’ x 200’ outdoor ring, a 72’ x160’ indoor ring, 30 stalls (10’ x 10’ and 10’ x 12’), several all-weather turnout paddocks for year-round turnout, grass paddocks, tack room, offices, horse laundry facilities, the Learning Center, and a locker room for our Troopers.  As part of our initiative to be as eco-friendly as possible, the facility boasts a geothermal heat pump, which uses natural heat from the earth and groundwater to heat and cool the barn.
