Donations will help therapy horses

Donations help Comox Valley Therapeutic Riding purchase hay for therapy horses.

BELLA IS HOPING to get some hay for Christmas.

Your donation would help Comox Valley Therapeutic Riding to purchase hay for one of its therapy horses for a day, a week or more depending on your purchase amount.

Once we receive your request we will mail out a gift bookmark (not the actual bale of hay!) to your recipient, notifying them that you’ve made the purchase on their behalf.

Alternatively, you can pick up the gift bookmark and card at our office and present it to your loved one in whichever way you wish: laid out on a dish, wrapped up in a box, or maybe inside some socks!

Consider the gift of giving this season that supports a local charity, is environmentally friendly and socially conscientious. Check the purchase forms found in this paper or see the Hay for Horses Campaign at www.cvtrs.com.

Requests must be received on or before Dec. 13. In December we’re open Tuesdays to Thursdays from 10 to 2 until Dec. 19 when we close down for the holidays.

For more information, call 250-338-1968. Tax receipts are available for donations $10 and over.

Maybe hay isn’t something you think your loved one will get excited about. Another gift idea is to give them a book of discount coupons so they can shop till they drop at many of our local stores. The books are $20 each and contain over $600 worth of savings.

A list of locations is available online and are available for purchase at CVTRS and many stores around town.

The Comox Valley Therapeutic Riding Society has been serving the Comox Valley since 1987. We are a registered non-profit that provides therapeutic riding programs for children and adults with physical, mental and emotional challenges.

We have 16 horses in our care that are carefully chosen and trained to do many specific jobs. Therapeutic riding has many social, psychological and physical benefits for our riders.
