The North Okanagan Therapeutic Riding Association (NOTRA) is a non-profit registered charity that was incorporated in 1984 and provides recreational horseback riding therapy for children and adults with special needs in the North Okanagan / Shuswap.

NOTRA is an independent therapeutic riding centre that operates under guidelines and standards laid out by the  Canadian Therapeutic Riding Association (CanTRA) and the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) International.

Spring and Fall riding sessions are held at the scenic and central location of Historic O’Keefe Ranch north of Vernon, BC. Weekly lessons are offered Monday through Friday to between 80 – 90 clients and a team of over 50 volunteers supports the program donating their time to make what we do possible.
