The Comox Valley Therapeutic Riding Society is having a barn dance June 14 to raise funds and awareness for the society, featuring the Victoria country band Montgomery Country.

Dust off your boots and get out your cowboy hat and hit the dance floor to country hits from artists such as Garth Brooks, Blake Shelton, Dwight Yoakum, Brooks & Dunn and Luke Bryan as well as original songs penned by lead singer Wayne Montgomery.

Therapeutic horseback riding has a long-standing history of being used to teach riding skills to children and adults who have cognitive, physical or emotional disabilities. The CVTRS has been offering its services and facilities for 29 years and in that time has grown from a clientele of five riders, to a program that services 130 clients every week.

Funds raised from this barn dance will go towards the maintenance of the society’s 18 specially trained horses – a cost of roughly $2,400 per horse, per year.

Tickets are $25 apiece and are available at Shar-Kare, South Country Feed and Supply, Tack ‘em Up Stables, Summerside Tack Shop, Black Country Farm and Feeds and the gate.
