The FTRA is a non-profit organization* dedicated to providing therapeutic horseback riding to individuals with a physical and/or cognitive disability such as Cerebral Palsy, Developmental Delay, ADHD, Down Syndrome, and Spina Bifida.


Our program provides opportunities for individuals to learn to ride while at the same time working on physical, cognitive and psychosocial goals.

Silverwood Farm has been host to the Fredericton Therapeutic Riding Association since 1998. The farm’s older and well schooled lesson horses are used in the weekly rides. These horses are gentle and wise and themselves have found a venue to keep them young at heart. We are very happy to be able to help provide a service in our community that benefits everyone involved.

FTRA is always looking for volunteers, especially those who are experienced horse people. Volunteers are used as horse leaders or side-walkers. Each rider starts with 3 volunteers - one to lead the horse and two side-walkers.
