Expanding our Board of Directors


The North Fraser Therapeutic Riding Association is looking for individuals who would like to join our dynamic Board of Directors. Thirty years ago two women brought therapeutic riding dreams into reality by starting with only two donkeys and founding NFTRA. We now have 10 horses and five therapeutic riding instructors offering lessons 6 days a week from our barn in Maple Ridge, BC. As we continue to expand the therapeutic reach of our programming we need you to join our leadership team.


Help us take the reins into the future of Therapeutic Riding as we continue to enhance the lives of our riders of all ages by offering them *Freedom through Riding*. Please call our office at 604-462-7786 or email info@nftra.ca for more information.
