Terms and Conditions

Thank you for participating in New Canaan Mounted Troop, Inc.’s (NCMT) Virtual Adoption Program. We rely on our generous donors to continue the operations of NCMT.

Your “Virtual Adoption” is subject to the following terms and conditions:

  1. You understand that this is a “virtual” adoption only, and that you are not entitled to any ownership of any kind of the horse or pony that you have chosen.
  2. By virtually adopting a horse or pony, you will be allowed to visit NCMT’s facilities and “your” horse or pony on designated virtual adoption visitation days only. If you cannot attend on the designated visitation dates, you may, at NCMT’s discretion, schedule an alternate visitation date depending on NCMT’s availability to accommodate you. We cannot guarantee that an alternate visitation date will be available.
  3. Occasionally our horses or ponies leave the NCMT program due to various circumstances. If the horse or pony you have chosen to virtually adopt leaves our facility prior to your designated visitation date, you will be allowed to choose an alternate horse or pony during your visitation day.
  4. Please note that we cannot offer refunds on your virtual adoption donation in the event that the horse or pony you have chosen is no longer part of the NCMT program.
  5. NCMT respects the privacy of all our donors. NCMT does not share your personal information with any other organizations. NCMT does not retain your credit card information except to process the requested transaction.
