The Rider's Closet

The Rider's Closet is a program started by Georgina Bloomberg in August 2006. The program aims to make riding clothes more accessible to therapeutic riding programs, pony clubs, intercollegiate riding programs and individual riders who are in need. The Rider's Closet accepts all lightly used riding gear then donates them to anyone who requests the items (U.S. only). All equestrian clothing and boots except helmets are accepted.

As The Rider's Closet has grown over the past several years, so has Georgina's equestrian career. Due to her expanded travel schedule, she wanted to move The Rider's Closet from a home-based operation to a new location where it could operate on a continuous basis.

Pegasus Therapeutic Riding is a non-profit organization that provides equine-assisted activities to people with special needs, veterans and at-risk individuals. We run programs at four chapters in New York and Connecticut, including Pegasus Farm, our main equestrian center in Brewster, N.Y. Familiar with Pegasus' philanthropic mission and services, Georgina has partnered with us to bring The Rider's Closet to Pegasus Farm. A Pegasus staff person manages the program and oversees the volunteers who staff The Rider's Closet on a part-time basis.
