“My daughter Heidi has participated in Therapeutic Ride Algoma (TRA) since 2012 when she was ten years old. Over this time, I have watched her confidence and abilities grow, with the help of dedicated volunteers, caring instructors and, of course, wonderful horses! Riding with TRA has been a highly formative and socially beneficial experience for Heidi. As a parent of a child with a disability, I am grateful she has had this opportunity to learn, develop and have lots of fun.”
