HRH The Princess Royal Patron of CanTRA

HRH The Princess Royal Patron of CanTRA

In 1986, the Princess Royal, Princess Anne, kindly accepted an invitation to become Patron of CanTRA. She is also President of the Riding for the Disabled Association (UK) and Patron of the Riding for the Disabled Association of Australia.

Her Royal Highness combines two major interests in bestowing her patronage on therapeutic riding. She has been President of Save the Children since 1970 and has enjoyed a successful equestrian career, including competing at the 1975 Olympics in Montreal as a member of the British Eventing Team.

The Princess Royal has visited many therapeutic riding programs in Britain and abroad. In 1988, during a visit to Canada that included the Royal Winter Fair, she attended a riding demonstration at CARD (Community Association for Riders with Disabilities) in Downsview, Ontario, hosted by CanTRA.

CanTRA is both proud and grateful to have the Princess Royal as its Patron.
