Mother Nature Powell River

We are very grateful to Mother Nature for their continuing support of our program. We feel very blessed to be one of the charities that receive money from Mother Nature for the money they raise for their Christmas Pet Pictures with Santa and toenail clippings. Thank-you!

donation to buy a horse

We would like to thank the Hospital Auxiliary for their continued support of our program. Their donations provide an integral piece of PRTRA - our Therapy Horses.This year's donation allowed us to purchase our beautiful Zora, a 'silver or grey' Fjord mare who is an excellent therapy horse for all our riders, from pre-school to adult. Thank you again!

telus logo

This year we were once again pleased to receive a grant from the Telus Community Action Team. Telus, their team members and retirees have contributed millions of dollars and hours of service in local communities. And as a member of Imagine Canada through the Imagine Canada Caring Company program they donate more than 1% of their pre-tax profits to charitable organizations like ours.

Thank you Telus
for supporting the communities you serve.

Silent Auction Thanks

We are very grateful to all the merchants, volunteers and friends of Powell River Therapeutic Riding Association for your support of our Silent Auction held during the Fall Fair. Thank you also to everyone who came and generously bid on our items.

The money raised will help us continue to provide this unique and effective form of therapy to over 70 riders weekly.
