Maryland Therapeutic Riding, Inc. has announced the appointment of Cathy Rosenbaum as executive director of the Crownsville facility. Most recently, Rosenbaum was an integral part of the Mount Vernon Place Conservancy team, managing the $7 million restoration of the Washington Monument in Baltimore.
Rosenbaum’s personal horse was in a therapeutic riding program for several years, and she was fortunate enough to see firsthand the profoundly positive impact equine therapy can have in breaking down barriers and improving the lives of people with special needs.
Maryland Therapeutic Riding is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life of children and adults with special needs through equine-based therapies and activities. In 2015, MTR’s certified instructors, licensed therapists, volunteers and specially trained horses provided more than 3,000 equine-assisted therapy hours.
