The NFTRA Rides fundraising program helps secure much need financing to run our program, care for our horses and continue to grow into the future. These funds go directly into the cost of operations as well as helping us subsidize our lesson fees.
NFTRA receives some funding from provincial gaming and through lesson fees however it is not enough to cover the full cost of caring for horses, purchasing equipment, and maintaining our facility. Continued fundraising is necessary from personal and business donations so we can provide this vital support for our riders and help fund the costs of running our facility and caring for our horses.
