Therapeutic Riding Society offers gift idea

Tired of trying to think of a present for that certain someone who has everything?

THE COMOX VALLEY Therapeutic Riding Society has a different kind of Christmas gift suggestion for you.

Tired of trying to think of a present for that certain someone who has everything? Do you want to find a unique gift that has real meaning and will be unforgettable?

How about buying them a bale of hay (or two or three or four)? Hay, you say? Well, it beats getting coal in your stocking!

Here’s how it works, your donation will help us purchase hay for a therapy horse for a day, a week or more depending on your purchase amount.

Once your request is received, the Comox Valley Therapeutic Riding Society 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 at the CVTRS 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, socially conscientious and is unique. When was the last time you gave a bale of hay for Christmas? Please see purchase forms in the paper or check out www.cvtrs.com.

Requests must be received in the office on or before Dec. 13 to make sure your recipient receives the mailed notification in time. In December, the CVTRS is open 9 a.m. to noon from Monday to Friday until Dec. 15.

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

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

CVTRS has 12 horses in its care that are carefully chosen and trained to do many specific jobs. Therapeutic riding has many social, psychological and physical benefits for riders.
