We hope everyone in the Albany Therapeutic Riding Center family and community are staying healthy, safe, and supported during this unprecedented time. As NYS and the country as a whole are under social distancing and stay at home orders, ATRC has had to cancel and postpone all lessons and programs until further notice to ensure the safety of our riders, volunteers, staff, and supporters.
While our programs are postponed, our ATRC herd still need all of their regular care and maintenance. It is our utmost responsibility to our fabulous herd to ensure they are well cared for and safe. The average cost of routine care and maintenance is around $5,000 annually per horse, even during these difficult times. These costs are normally fully covered by lesson fees and fundraising. As a member of the ATRC community, you know that horses have the power to change lives and provide opportunities to so many children and adults.
If you are in a position to help, please consider a tax -deductible donation to help keep our herd healthy and in top condition so that they are ready to return to work as soon as it is safe. For all of the children and families who count on us, please help ensure our equine partners are ready to hit the ground running when we are able to resume our programs.
ATRC thanks you deeply for your continued generosity and support, especially during this time. We miss you all more than you know and cannot wait to have all of your smiling faces back at the farm! In the meantime, if you want to stay updated with what the horses are up to, be sure to check out our Facebook page and Instagram!
Your tax deductible donation will support our horses and ensure the future of programming for Albany Therapeutic Riding Center, Inc and our horses. Help us take care of our herd, we cannot do what we do without them!
