Beekman Therapeutic Riding Center
Organized by: Beekman Riding
Beekman Therapeutic Riding Center (BTRC) is located in Lansing, Michigan, and it is a part of the Lansing School District. In this program, kids from the associated school, Beekman Center, can go out to BTRC every day and ride the horses as therapy, as well as students from other districts. The teachers of Beekman Center have said that they noticed a large difference in the way the students act after their daily riding lesson. Due to recent cuts in funding, BTRC is in danger of being shut down. All the horses would have to find new homes, and the students from the Beekman Center would no longer be able to participate in the therapeutic riding program. If we can raise enough money by June 1, 2015, the program will be able to continue.
