Stories of our community involvement
First Credit Union & Insurance is happy to be supporting Powell River Therapeutic Riding Association with funds to re-cover the arena footing for the 2019/2020 season. This will mean happier hooves, feet and backs for all the participants, staff, volunteers and equus ferus caballus. Yay!

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.
