The Joyriders Therapeutic Riding Association is a provincially incorporated non-profit organization and a federally registered charity. We are governed by a volunteer board of directors, and our riding programs are managed by a Program Team. We hold two membership-accessible meetings each year: the AGM in May and the Christmas Party, to both of which visitors are always welcome. The principal tasks of the board are advocacy and facilitation for the program, and fund-raising to help meet the program's operating and equipment needs. The Joyriders is an accredited centre of the Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association (CanTRA) and its instructors are all CanTRA-certified. CanTRA is the national standard-setting body for therapeutic riding in Canada.
The Joyriders program operates at River Trails Ranch, owned and operated by John and Kathryn Barrett, located on Rte. 2 in Hunter River.
