NFTRA’s $40.00/half hour lesson fee is a subsidized amount that reflects roughly 20% of the actual cost/lesson. Income from lesson fees and the annual grant received from BC Gaming is unfortunately not enough income to balance the annual operating budget, which leaves NFTRA to fundraise the remaining.
Continued fundraising and donations from individuals and businesses is essential so that NFTRA can continue to provide the uniquely beneficial and rewarding program that is Therapeutic Riding, to our participants.
