North Country RIDE (NCR) was incorporated as a 501(c)3 nonprofit in 1982. Working with 14 clients that first year out of a local farm, the program has grown to serving over 125 clients per year at our own equine center on 30 acres in Esko, MN. Building an indoor arena in 1993 helped solidify the programming by removing the weather as a variable. An education building completed in 2012 complements the facility with the addition of a classroom area, a waiting area for clients and caregivers, and a commons area where volunteers can relax and recharge before and between classes.
We are located in Esko, MN, 20 miles southwest of Duluth, MN. Get directions »
