Southlands Therapeutic Riding Society (STaRS) began as a dream in the early 2000's, and through the dedicated efforts of a core group of volunteers, became a reality. We offer a therapeutic horseback riding program to children and adults with special needs who require alternative forms of therapy to aid in their physical, cognitive, emotional and social development.
Caring for a person with special needs often has major financial implications and as a result our riders and their families rely on bursaries to fund their therapies. With your donation our riders and their families can continue to benefit from increased confidence, new skills and a sense of self-worth.
STaRS is a Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association (CANTRA) certified facility and a registered non-profit society.
