What is therapeutic riding?

Therapeutic Riding is a unique and holistic approach to therapy, rehabilitation and recreation. The Lanark County Therapeutic Riding Program (LCTRP) provides a safe environment introducing disabled 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, enthusiastic Volunteers who offer their expertise and caring and, of course, our wonderful Horses!

Greetings to Riders, Families and Volunteers

of the Riding Program!

Another season of Therapeutic Riding is just around the corner. In fact, 2016 marks our 31st year of offering therapeutic riding lessons in and around Lanark County!  On that note - we would like to offer a great big thank-you to all of you who participate and continue to support the program year after year!

Therapeutic Riding includes so many other wonderful people who selflessly give so much of their time and energy to keep our program running. It is a humbling experience working with such amazing people and I am very, very privileged to be able to do so.  

The lessons are once again being held in Perth; and, we are proud to announce that our other location has been moved to Beckwith Township at the Ashland Farm on the Derry Road.  Direction to our riding locations can be found on the Contact page.

For any questions or comments, or to volunteer, please feel free to give me a call at the office (613)257-7121 x 238 or e-mail me at  I would love to hear from you!

Thanks + see you at the farm!
