The Library Visits New Canaan Mounted Troop for Grades K to 4 (In Person)

December 19 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Location: New Canaan Mounted Troop

Let’s meet at New Canaan Mounted Troop to practice mindfulness as we learn about horse care. This is a hands-on workshop! Expert instructors will teach participants how to work with and around horses at New Canaan Mounted Troop. How are we different? How are we alike? We will observe horse behaviors and learn how to take care of horses while we brush and groom. Come and see how we can move a pony that weighs hundreds of pounds with just two fingers! It’s possible!

This program is open to elementary-aged children. All participants must wear masks, and an adult caregiver must remain at New Canaan Mounted Troop during the program.

Register here.

This program is in partnership with New Canaan Mounted Troop and New Canaan Library.
Founded in 1939, New Canaan Mounted Troop (NCMT) is a 501 (c) (3) youth development and therapeutic equestrian center located in New Canaan, CT. NCMT operates a comprehensive horsemanship program for youth ages 7-17 years (“Troopers”) and a therapeutic program (“Super Troopers”) for children and adults with disabilities. Overall, NCMT currently serves nearly 300 individuals.
The mission of NCMT is 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.
In 2012, NCMT launched “Super Troopers” to offer equine assisted therapeutic programs to serve children and adults at risk with physical, emotional, intellectual and developmental disabilities using its donated horses and ADA compliant facility.

New Canaan Mounted Troop is located at 22 Carter Street, New Canaan, CT 06840.

This program is intended for children in grades K through 4 only. If your child cannot wear a mask for medical reasons please contact Marie Aspinwall ([email protected]) 24 hours prior to class to discuss possible accommodations.
