The Cowichan Therapeutic Riding Association is 10 thousand dollars richer, thanks to a grant from the Canada Post Community Foundation.
Executive director Anne Muir says the money will be used to hire a new program assistant. She says the helping hand is needed because the program continues to grow.
Muir says there are already more than 115 riders that come every week.
Muir says thanks to the support of Canada Post, the Association hopes to welcome 15 more children to its program.
