Without the involvement of some 10 volunteers who ensure that Projet équestre Goldie runs smoothly, it would be impossible to fulfill our main mission to offer quality services at the best possible cost for parents.

We would like to especially thank Daniel Hayward and Brigitte Vachon, who have volunteered at the centre since 2003 and 2007 respectively.
