ETRA became a registered Society in 1989. As a member of CanTRA and B.C. Therapeutic Riding Association we enjoy many benefits such as ongoing education, an insurance package and an instructor certification program.
ETRA’s Instructors are fully certified by the Canadian Equestrian Federation and the Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association and hold current First Aid Certificates.
Our volunteers are the backbone of the operation. Without them we would not be able to ride. All volunteers are given an in-depth training session before they begin. Safety is stressed as well as their needed commitment. To date, up to 40 clients enjoy each of the two 11-week seasonal sessions assisted by 40 to 50 volunteers
We hope, as a group of volunteers, that we all can help those with disabilities and serve our community to the best of our ability.
