The Rider's Closet

The Rider's Closet is a program founded by professional equestrian Georgina Bloomberg in 2006. This very successful grass-roots program has grown significantly over the past decade and today positively impacts the equestrian community nationwide. 

The Rider’s Closet aims to make riding clothes more accessible to therapeutic riding programs, pony clubs, intercollegiate riding programs and individual riders who are in need. Georgina’s mission in founding the program is to help ensure that riding is an accessible sport for everyone, especially riders financially unable to acquire the riding apparel they need to pursue their equestrian dreams.

In 2010, Georgina relocated The Rider’s Closet’s operations from her home to nearby nonprofit Pegasus Therapeutic Riding, which enables the program to run on a continuous basis. Pegasus provides equine-assisted activities and therapies to people with special needs, individuals at risk, and soon, military veterans. A Pegasus staff person manages The Rider’s Closet program and oversees the volunteers who staff it on a part-time basis.

The Rider's Closet accepts individual and corporate donations of all new and gently used riding gear, then donates the items to any rider in need in the U.S. who requests them. All equestrian clothing and boots except helmets are accepted.
