Description & Services
Description (Service) Physical and social activity that teaches cooperation between people and animals. Opportunity to share experiences with both disabled and able-bodied riders. Riding is used to mentally and physically stimulate riders, enhance their alertness and their ability to concentrate, and helps to increase self-awareness and self-confidence. 
Riding is conducted in small groups of up to a maximum of four riders per group. CanTRA (Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association - national governing body) qualified instructors, assisted by volunteers, teach lessons tailored to the riders' abilities and requirements.
