The Timmins Therapeutic Riding Association participates in numerous community events to help increase public awareness and raise funds to offset program costs for our riders. This is done by setting up information booths, taking pictures with the ponies, giving pony and buggy rides or doing demonstrations with our riders. We attend a number of events including Canada Day Celebrations, Porcupine District Agricultural Society Fall Fair, Bi-monthly Bingos and TTRA's Annual Spook Walk.
Information about some of our past Special Events of 2012 is listed below.
Timmins Therapeutic Riding Association held a special 25th Anniversary celebration on Saturday, June 23rd. Many families were in attendance and Mayor Tom Laughren and Special Constable Thumper were on hand for the opening ceremonies. There were long line ups for pony rides, BBQ hot dogs and pop (all proceeds to riding programs). Many enjoyed a nature walk down the Freedom Trail and some ol'fashioned activities such as fishing and bean bag toss. Click link for more details.Click here to see our Youtube video
In order to be ready for the 9 am start at the Mountjoy Arena for pony rides, which are a major fund raiser for TTRA, volunteers are needed to help get the horses ready for the day. Preparation begins at Rainbow Stables and once horses are moved to the arena, help is needed to walk alongside the horse and rider and to help feed and groom the horses. Inside the arena there are tickets to be sold for draw prizes.
