OUR STORY

Making Strides Changing Lives

In 2009 a small group met at Angie Ruigrok’s farmhouse in South Niagara to share her passion for service to the community. From that initial meeting came a common vision. Angie’s farm and horses have been used by EquineAbility since inception and EquineAbility owns one horse.


Our Vision: To offer the rewarding experience of interacting with and riding horses to those who, because of various mobility and developmental limitations, would not have that opportunity.


The vision became reality and EquineAbility Therapeutic Riding Centre was born in 2010. Led by a volunteer Board of Directors we were incorporated as a not-for-profit entity. Since those early beginnings EquineAbility Therapeutic Riding Centre has grown and matured. We are now a fully accredited charity registered with the Canada Revenue
Agency.


Having recognized the special needs of some of our clients who are not able mount and ride a horse, the Board of EquineAbility decided to purchase a horse-drawn cart. A donation from Wise Guys Charity Fund helped us acquire a handcrafted, wheel-chair accessible cart with tie-down system. A fundraiser at the O’Hara farm provided the money we needed to complete the purchase of harnesses and storage.
