Gay Conn launched our 2018 sessions by introducing us to the North Fraser Therapeutic Riding Association (NFTRA) which is a non-profit charitable organization enriching the lives of children and adults who experience physical, mental, emotional or social challenges by providing safe and professional therapeutic equine programming.
Following the devastating loss of her son, Clay, in 2001, Gay was motivated to pursue a lifelong dream, and her fascination of horses led her to NFTRA. The programs offered by NFTRA promote a host of benefits for riders, including fun, socialization and therapy which is a catalyst for learning and development.
A Competitive Program is now being offered, and attendees of Women’s AM enjoyed a special and personal message from 15 year old Hannah, who is working towards participating competitively, as she shared how the program has improved her confidence and enhanced her life.
Volunteers are welcome at NFTRA to assist with the following roles:
