The Salt Spring Therapeutic Riding Association offers four riding sessions per year in the fall, winter, spring and summer. Lessons are one hour every week. Our classes are taught by therapeutic riding instructors, and our riders are assisted by trained volunteers, as horse leaders and/or sidewalkers.
At Salt Spring Therapeutic Riding, our students benefit from social interaction with instructors, and volunteers. Decision-making, speech, and communication skills are developed throughout each lesson. All aspects of the program are designed to enhance our students' over-all well being. Our horses are selected for their patience and quiet temperaments.
We are always looking for volunteers to assist with the riding lessons, stable management, barn chores, administrative duties fund raising and more.
For those with physical, intellectual, or emotional challenges, therapeutic riding is a unique way to obtain healthy physical exercise.
and it's FUN!
