Everything we do at MTR is for our
riders. From as young as two-years old
to adults in their seventies, MTR
strives to make each ride a fun yet
therapeutic experience. We celebrate the
success of our riders everyday!
Please take a moment to read the
enrollment information below.
Thank you for your interest in Maryland
Therapeutic Riding. On our website, you
will find a complete Rider Application
Packet, as well as instructions for
enrollment into our Program. The first
step toward participating in an MTR
session is to fully complete your
Rider Application Packet (see link
then call us for a site visit. Once
your site visit has been held and all
forms have been submitted to MTR, you
will be put on the schedule as indicated
by your session registration form.
During site visits/evaluations, we will
need to ensure that our program is
appropriate for you, and that there are
no contraindications to you or your
child’s participation. At this time we
will discuss our services and how we can
best meet your needs. Following the
evaluation and the determination that we
can safely accommodate you, you will be
eligible to register for the next riding
session. Please see our Scheduling
Request Form and Payment Form for
enrollment fees and session
We strive to provide the safest possible
conditions for participants, volunteers
and employees. MTR is a Premier
Accredited Center, and we adhere to all
the precautions and contraindications by
the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemandship (PATH). The
acceptance, and continued participation
of a rider in our program depends on the
availability of instructors, volunteers
and suitable horses. MTR retains the
right to refuse any participant that we
cannot safely accommodate.
We look forward to seeing you at
Maryland Therapeutic Riding!
