In 1999, NCMT purchased the facility and land at 22 Carter Street from the Self family for $1million after a long capital campaign. The barn was very old and offered no potential for program development.
In 2003, NCMT started a second capital campaign and began to plan for the construction of a new barn to ensure that its programs and its commitment to the local community would remain for generations to come.
It took six years of hard work on the part of NCMT’s Board of Directors and substantial fundraising efforts to make this dream come true. In the late spring of 2009, the horses
were moved into the beautiful new facility we are all enjoying today. This achievement became reality thanks to the generosity of many individuals. The total cost of the project was $2.7million: it was funded with over $2 million of donations/proceeds from fundraising events and a $650K construction loan.
NCMT is a state-of-the-art, ADA compliant facility with handicap access that features a 140′ x 200′ outdoor ring, a 72′ x 160′ indoor ring, 30 stalls (10′ x 10′ and 10′ x 12′), several all-weather turnout paddocks for year around use, grass paddocks, heated wash stalls, a tack room, a locker room, a feed room, offices, and a spacious temperature controlled Learning Center for our Troopers.
As part of an initiative to be actively eco-friendly, our facility boasts a geothermal heat pump, which uses natural heat from the earth and groundwater to heat and cool the stable.
