Welcome to New Canaan Mounted Troop
Celebrating its 80th year, New Canaan Mounted Troop is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization providing the most comprehensive educational Horsemanship and Equine Care Programs for youth in Fairfield County. In 2012, NCMT also launched the Super Troopers Therapeutic Programs to serve children and adults with special needs.
Located in New Canaan, CT, NCMT was founded in 1939 by celebrated horsewoman, children’s author, and community leader, Margaret Cabell Self.
To this day, NCMT honors the founding principles of its original mission statement:
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.
All students and volunteers walk through our barn doors with a love for horses and leave with so much more!
