Southlands Therapeutic Riding Society
Where a rider can simply be.
Goats, pigs, chickens and a cob oven in a therapeutic riding centre? You bet. Better still, to get there you don't even have to leave the City of Vancouver.
Southlands Therapeutic Riding Society (STaRS) is located in Southlands Village on the same site as Maynard's Pony Meadows and Southlands Heritage Farm. This means that riders experience not only the joy of riding a horse, but can interact with typical riders while enjoying the beauty of a working farm.
STaRS began as a dream in the early 2000's, and through the dedicated efforts of a core group of volunteers, became a reality. It began as a grassroots operation, and today, is a Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association (CANTRA) certified facility and a registered non-profit society.
Feel free to drop by and see for yourself that dreams really can come true!
