The Lanark County Therapeutic Riding Program


What is therapeutic riding?

Therapeutic Riding is a unique and holistic approach to therapy, rehabilitation and recreation. The Lanark County Therapeutic Riding Program provides a safe environment introducing children and adults to the benefits and joys of the healing powers of the horse. The team consists of Instructors who are certified through the Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association, a consulting Physiotherapist who is trained in hippotherapy, enthusiastic volunteers who offer their expertise and caring and of course our wonderful horses!


What's New?



The Volunteers' Guide to Therapeutic Riding:  This short course provides Lanark Therapeutic Riding Program volunteers with content that supports the Volunteer Handbook. Review exercises provide volunteers with opportunities to practice what they learn.
