Riders back in the saddle after COVID-19 shuts down Aldergrove’s only therapy barn
June 25, 2020
Tuesday morning marked the reintroduction of equine-assisted therapy to riders at Valley Therapeutic Equestrian Association (VTEA) in Aldergrove, following months of closure due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Crystal Williams, who has been riding horses therapeutically since she was just three years old, was ecstatic to get back to what she calls her “favourite place” June 16.
“When I first started horseback riding, I had very poor balance and my fine motor skills were very delayed” due to Kabuki syndrome, “so I did hippotherapy.”
