NEW KINGDOM
TRAILRIDERS

Join Us on Our Journey of Acceptance, Encouragement, and Empowerment

New Kingdom Trailriders, the Quad Cities' premiere therapeutic horseback riding facility utilizes the magic of horses to enrich the lives of those who struggle physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally. Riders of all ages partner with our horses and together embark on a journey to build courage, trust, strength, and purpose.

 

We strive to become the leading standard uniting people with horses through acceptance and encouragement. Establishing area partnerships including Arrowhead Youth and Family Services, Camelot Therapeutic Day School, Top of the World Ranch, Argrow’s House, and the ARC of the Quad Cities we are able to expand our mission in order to bring physical and mental wellness to our community’s citizens.

Knowing the benefits our program offers and the high cost of medical care, we do all we can to ensure our program is economically affordable for those who struggle physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally. As a supporter of New Kingdom Trailriders, your donation will help us continue to ensure our program is obtainable to those in need.

Each time a rider sits in the saddle for a lesson, it costs New Kingdom Trailriders $65.37. This cost includes all horse care, training, maintenance, and day-to-day necessities such as lighting and heat. Riders however pay less than 40% of that cost, and those who show financial difficulty can apply for one of our various scholarships. It is our dream for our riders not to pay out of pocket for their lessons. Please consider giving a one-time gift of support or a monthly donation to help us continue to empower the most vulnerable members of our community!
