Here is a little bit more about the Frederick County 4H Therapeutic Riding Program:
The Frederick County 4H Therapeutic Riding Program Inc. began in April 1984 as a special project under the Frederick County 4H Horse and Pony Club. We are incorporated in the state of Maryland as a non-profit 501c3 organization.
- We provide a seven week session of riding instruction each spring and fall
- Our 76 students ride free of charge
- Classes are held on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and all day Saturdays.
Our program always has a waiting list of applicants, but our enrolment is limited by money and the availability of volunteers.
We are always in need of funds to maintain or replace equipment for the riders and horses. Funds are needed to care for our horses’ health, including feed, veterinarian care and hoof care.
The Frederick County 4H Therapeutic Riding Program is not funded through any Federal, State or County funds. We rely solely on private donations, local clubs, private individuals, fund raising – such as cookie sales, pizza sales etc.
