The Timmins Police Ceremonial Mounted Unit
Two of our therapy horses are used. Armbro Thumper was introduced in 2012 during the 100th Anniversary of the Timmins Police Service. Her designation is Special Constable, and her first partner was Cst. Brad Palmer, then subsequently Cst. Kent Jamieson, and currently Sgt. Tim Chalmers. Later, our Petite Pooka was added with Bridget Tomchick.
They have attended many functions over the past years which include Indigenous Peoples Day, The Kayak Challenge, Armory Parade, Remembrance Day Ceremonies, and leading the Christmas Parade.
Rainbow Stables, the home of Timmins Therapeutic Riding Association, has a large outdoor riding arena with ramp and mounting blocks and a grass arena for mounted games. They also have barns, an outdoor storage building/tack room, and a flood lit arena for evening/night riding. The Timmins Therapeutic Riding Association has several carts, sleighs, and wagons, as well as equipment for western games, trail riding, jumping and driving. Come see our Freedom Trail, a 2.2 km scenic trail that winds through woods and meadows for riding and driving and community fundraising events.
We appreciate the support of our sponsors who are vital in helping to meet the ongoing need for repairs and maintenance. This ensures public safety and allows us to continue with our equine assisted learning programs and community events.
