Powell River Therapeutic Riding Association provides Therapeutic Horse Back Riding for children and adults with physical, mental, emotional and learning disabilities. It takes approximately 6,000 volunteer hours a year to run the riding program, special events, facility maintenance, special projects, horse care and more! First Credit Union & Insurance is an ongoing supporter of PR Therapeutic Riding - most recently we proudly sponsored a 10-week spring therapy session for over 70 riders.
Our team sure worked hard today at Powell River Therapeutic Riding Association! We're so proud to work alongside this incredible organization for many Community Impact Days in the past and in the future! #CommunityImpactDay
So excited for our Community Impact Day tomorrow! First Credit Union & Insurance and Westview Agencies Ltd. will be closing our doors at 2pm so that all our employees can volunteer in the community.

We'll also be doing a clean up along Dunsmuir Avenue in Cumberland. LOVE this day of volunteering!
We're incredibly proud to present Powell River Therapeutic Riding Association with one of our 2017 Community Investment Funds! PRTRA is a secure organization that works collaboratively within the community to provide unique, accessible therapy to people with disabilities in Powell River. This fund will provide new shelters to house the additional horses needed for their growing program! Learn more about PRTA here: http://www.prtherapeuticriding.c...
