Please join us for a night of fine dining, entertainment and the opportunity to support the New Canaan Mounted Troop mission to build leadership, responsibility and confidence in youth through sound horsemanship; and to enrich the lives of individuals with special needs through equine assisted activities. 

Your support will enable NCMT to continue to teach our students leadership skills, team work, community service through horsemanship and equine care.

Our Story: Enriching Lives Through Horses

For 85 years, New Canaan Mounted Troop (NCMT) has upheld a unique and valuable mission to build leadership, responsibility and confidence in youth through sound horsemanship; and to enrich the lives of individuals with special needs through equine assisted experiences.

Today, the devoted team and volunteers at Mounted Troop work to deepen the bond between humans and horses through programs that connect over 300 adults and children each year with the beauty, power and wisdom of horses:

  • Super Troopers, a therapeutic program for children and adults with special needs.
  • Troopers, a youth development program where children ages 7–18 are mentored through equine care, riding and barn management.

Your generous support will enable New Canaan Mounted Troop to continue to bring its life changing programming to our community as well as provide the care, feeding, maintenance and retirement of the 28 donated horses and ponies at our barn. NCMT is a unique program that uses sound horsemanship and equine care to teach our students leadership skills, team work, community service.

Troopers

With your help, Troopers will continue to develop leadership, responsibility and confidence through equine care, horsemanship and barn management
