SPIRIT Program

September 7 @ 1:30 pm - November 7 @ 3:30 pm

The Free Spirit Therapeutic Riding Association and Clannad Counselling & Consulting Inc., through generous funding from Veterans Affairs Canada, are excited to be working together to offer SPIRIT, an 18-month program designed to support women Veterans living in the Central and Western Regions of Nova Scotia (Halifax to Digby). We know there are gaps in services directly targeting the unique needs of women Veterans, and we are excited to have collaborated with women Veterans to design this program. We have run portions of this program for groups of women Veterans, as well as women currently serving, and have had their support in its development and growth.

Now, more than ever, we need to reach out and support one another. Our team consists of professionals experienced in working with women Veterans. SPIRIT will provide an opportunity to work with horses, learn from other members of the community through lunch & learns, and share in fun and engaging therapeutic experiences. Participants will have a unique opportunity to connect with other women Veterans in a safe environment while learning new skills, discovering strengths, inspiring one another, and exploring the healing power of relationship.

Program Start Dates: May or September 2022.

Registration Deadlines: April 14th, 2022 (First Cohort) and June 30th, 2022 (Second Cohort).

For more information or to register, please email or call 902-670-8402.

** No horse experience is required
