GNOTRC holds several fundraisers throughout the year.  We charge a minimal fee of $25 for our classes, however, that does not cover the cost of maintaining our horses, vet and farrier care, feed, hay, shavings, among some of the needs.  GNOTRC is supported by the United Way of St Charles as well as the St John United Way, but that doesn’t cover our entire budget.

Benefit Motorcycle Run

Join us on Sunday, April 21, 2024, for the 23rd Annual Harley for Horses Benefit Motorcycle Run to benefit the Greater New Orleans Therapeutic Riding Center, a nonprofit organization dedicated to the well-being of children and adults with disabilities through horse assisted activities. The organization was founded in 1993 with four students and two horses. Today, the riding center helps riders with disabilities with nine horses. Many thanks to Knight’s Order LE ME of LA for once again sponsoring the ride.
