The Heart of our Organization
There is something incredibly therapeutic about working with the horses and helping those who benefit from the riding programs at Timmins Therapeutic Riding Association.
Please consider volunteering. The new season has now begun!
Volunteer training is available and will cover grooming, tacking, side walking, leading and mounting.
This is great training if you plan to help out with any of the programs or special events not to mention great therapy for yourself as well. Please download a volunteer application, fill in the form and bring it with you when you come.
