Vital Sign: Learning

Total Grant: $14,000

Cowichan Therapeutic Riding AssociationThis program will expand the Cowichan Therapeutic Riding Association's Stable Management Vocational Development Program. The program uses the environmental practices and educational possibilities of stable management to create real-world employment opportunities for people with disabilities in our community. It uses the established therapeutic environment of horsemanship to develop employment skills based in the equestrian/agricultural industry, which are transferable to many other employment possibilities. Essential work experience is gained through volunteer roles.
