|Description & Services|
The Free Spirit Therapeutic Riding Association's mandate is to provide a safe environment for the enhancement of physical, emotional, educational and social development through therapeutic riding, equine assisted learning, hippotherapy and horsemanship. We work with people of all ages, exceptionalities and individuals who present with mental health concerns. We fulfill our mandate in partnership with the medical and psychological profession, community services, rehabilitation specialists, the equestrian community and others who support our mandate.
Our programs strengthen communities socially and economically by providing opportunities for community engagement, youth leadership development, and improved mental health in an environment that promotes physical literacy for people of all generations and abilities with a horse centric focus.
