For centuries horses have assisted humans by being workers, transporters, companions, teachers and therapists.
Therapeutic riding is a form of therapy that is found worldwide and dates back to 600 BC.
It is the use of the horse, and horse related activities, to provide a wide range of benefits for the rider.
CVTRS runs a variety of programs for people with mental, physical and emotional challenges. Sessions are taught by certified instructors in conjunction with physiotherapists, occupational therapists or therapists. Riders are also assisted by trained volunteers during all phases of their riding activities.
Proud to be the recipient of United Way Central & Northern Vancouver Island funding for programs in 2016/2017
