The CVTRS started in 1985 and became fully autonomous and duly constituted as a Registered Society, with a Board of Directors, in January 1989. It operates out of an indoor arena at the Courtenay Exhibition Grounds, rented from the Comox Regional District. In 1990 the barn and stable facility was upgraded with washrooms, a lounge, physio room, classroom, office and tack room. The Society presently serves 125 clients per week, 28 weeks of the year. The program provides non traditional therapy using the horse as a therapist, friend and teacher for physically, mentally and emotionally challenged children and adults. It is a direct service with tremendous long-term benefits.
