Description

Northland Therapeutic Riding Center is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that focuses on improving the quality of life of children and adults with special needs through equine-oriented therapy and activities. At NTRC, physical and occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, therapeutic riding instructors, volunteers, riders, and horses are partners in the equine-assisted therapeutic process.

Individuals with a wide range of physical, emotional, and learning challenges can benefit from work with the horse. Equine-assisted activities have been shown to improve balance, posture, muscle tone, coordination, and motor development as well as emotional well-being. It's also fun!

NTRC is located in the strengthening and nurturing environment of Rosewood Stables in Kearney, MO., just 23 miles north of Kansas City.

One cannot visit NTRC without realizing that something special is taking place. To learn how you can become part of our special program go to our website www.northlandtrc.org
