This month OneAbility is putting the spotlight on one of our members who has been providing outstanding resources in the community, the Victoria Therapeutic Riding Association.

The Victoria Therapeutic Riding Association (VTRA) was formed in 1982 to provide a therapeutic riding experience to children and adults with diverse abilities throughout the Greater Victoria area. Today, VTRA is a non-profit charitable organization that uses horseback riding as a recognized therapeutic aid and offers a variety of equine-assisted learning programs to more than 200 children and adults throughout the region. VTRA is made up of a volunteer board, a small staff team of six and more than 275 volunteers who, through their dedicated contribution of time, enable participants to benefit each week.

Despite navigating the many challenges associated with delivering services through a pandemic, VTRA programs are running and we are poised to offer summer programming for the first time ever. We will be offering FOUR WEEKS of summer camps for children and youth between the ages of 6 and 20. Camps will be delivered on-site and run the first two weeks in July and August. Email admin@vtra.ca to access summer camp registration.

But that is not all! VTRA is also looking to partner with other service agencies—so if you have ideas on how we can co-deliver programs—please connect with us! Our trained horses, certificed staff and amaxing volunteers want to offer fun and dynamic summer experiences to as many people as possible!
