It is nice to be in a calm place to put my mind at ease. Meeting the animals and helping to take care of them was relaxing. It was so nice to meet people who understood my mindset. Everyone was so nice.

There is no exaggeration when I say that WETRA has changed my life!

- Former WETRA Client, Turned Volunteer and Staff Member

Each person who participated benefited greatly from the experience. The staff have told me many times how excited the residents would be to talk about whatever activities or animals they were engaged with. We feel it was a very positive experience for everyone. I will certainly encourage residents and other professionals to get involved with WETRA in the future.

The experience I had at WETRA was a pleasant surprise, I found that I might be a more caring person than I previously thought. I am grateful for the opportunity I've had with this program, It definitely felt like I gained a newfound respect and appreciation for horses and life in general.

- Homelessness Partnering Strategy Program Participant

I am honoured to be involved in a partnership with WETRA which allows us to collaboratively provide an alternative healing strategy to children who have endured great loss. I think the experience is invaluable for the young people and likely something they will remember for many years to come.

WETRA has always been a place full of good people and animals doing great things. Who wouldn’t want to be a part of an amazing environment like that?

When she first started, she was unable to sit unassisted for any length of time. By the end of the first fall session her core strength had increased considerably. Now, she is able to sit alone unassisted for long periods of time. We are truly happy to have the WETRA family in our lives!

Our time spent at WETRA, interacting with the horses and receiving guidance from the instructors, set the foundation for my daughter’s building of confidence, kindness and character. In a single statement...horses have been a God send.
