New Kingdom Trailriders
New Kingdom Trailriders (NKT) is a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) corporation founded by a group of Christian horse owners wishing to dedicate their animals toward helping people. This desire to be of service to the community has produced a therapeutic horseback riding program known as “Mounted Achievers” that provides an alternative type of physical therapy and rehabilitation to the mentally and physically handicapped of the Greater Quad City area and surrounding communities. NKT was founded in 1984 as a riding club. The first therapeutic rides were given to clients of the Warren Achievement Center of Galesburg. The first regular riders were six students from Black Hawk Special Ed School and the first volunteers were recruited from 4-H. United Cerebral Palsy funded the insurance for the first three years. Since 1985, NKT has been giving affordable riding lessons to people with various accident related injuries, mental handicaps, cerebral palsy and other physical disabilities as well as development and learning disorders. Currently, NKT annually serves 50-60 students representing ages ranging between three and adult with a variety of disabilities. The program operates 4 evenings a week. During the day, private classes are available as well as field trip experiences for group homes, agencies and schools. In addition to group classes, Private classes are available as well as one day field trip experiences for group homes, agencies and schools.
