About Us

North Fraser Therapeutic Riding Association (NFTRA) 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.

NFTRA conducts 4 annual riding sessions of approximately 8-13 weeks each in the summer, fall, winter and spring. On average we serve over 100 clients per week. At the end of the spring session we hold our In-House Horse Show where riders showcase, in competition, what they have learned in their lessons.
