All safety equipment is provided although many of our riders prefer to bring their own helmets. All helmets must be SEI Certified. All instructors are qualified - understanding the principles of therapeutic riding recognized by CanTRA, the Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association, and Cheff Center in Augusta, Michigan.

 

Riders's must purchase a yearly LBTRA membership for $15.00.

Riding fees are currently $385.00 for the 11-week spring, $385.00 for the 11-week fall session and $280.00 for the 8-week winter session.


Each participant must also submit a post-dated cheque for $320.00 for their participation service commitment of 10 hours per year (Spring and Fall).  Once the 10 participant service commitment hours are completed, the post-dated cheque is returned. LBTRA hosts a number of fund-raising events throughout the year at which these service hours can be satisfied.
