MTRA provides therapeutic horseback riding or Equine Assisted Therapy sessions at a very minimal cost or on a sliding scale for those who cannot afford our very reasonable fees. The program income provides only 10-15% of the funding needed annually to keep our services in place and to cover the very high costs of feeding and maintaining horses, maintaining our facility, overhead costs such as insurance, staff and certified PATH instructors. Therefore, we rely heavily on the generosity of the community and its businesses and corporations through donations, grants and
other funding.
