Misty Meadows Mitey Riders, Inc. became a 501(c)(3) organization in 1998 and has grown leaps and bounds each year. The annual operating budget is funded solely by the generosity of our sponsors, donors, volunteers and rider families and is the only reason we are able to offer classes at no charge. Additionally, Mitey Riders has set up an Endowment Fund to assure the perpetuation of the program for years to come. Look below for easy ways to support Mitey Riders.
