Do you know a low income family with a child who wants to ride?


The Jumpstart/RecKids Program is a joint effort between HRM Community Recreation Services and the Canadian Tire Jumpstart Program to provide recreation opportunities to children, youth and families in financial need.


Jumpstart is designed to provide assistance to those who, due to lack of funds, would otherwise be unable to participate in sport, art, cultural, and recreation activities.


At this time, HRM supports registered non-profit organizations only.


Todd Hill Farm is a non-profit riding stable in Oakfield, NS (HRM) and we support the Jumpstart program.  We have had a few students take advantage of this funding already.  Now that spring is here, we wanted to let the local horse community know about this wonderful opportunity!
