The Comox Valley Therapeutic Riding Society's mission is to provide therapeutic horseback riding programs for children and adults with physical, mental and emotional diversabilities.
About THE COMOX VALLEY THERAPEUTIC RIDING SOCIETY
Formed in 1987, this registered society provides physical, psychological and social benefits to all physically, mentally and emotionally challenged children and adults. All riders undergo a screening by the appropriate medical professional(s) prior to starting in the program.
We have 8 different programs taught by our instructors (who are certified through Equine Canada or the Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association). Our horses are chosen carefully for their patience and kindness. New volunteers are always welcome and they are trained to help out the riders.
Today, with the help of over 135 volunteers, we have become the largest therapeutic riding program in British Columbia, with 122 clients attending per week.
