South Okanagan TrailRider Training 

South Okanagan Trailrider Training Day – June 3, 2023

Join us in Osoyoos on Saturday June 3rd for an educational, fun-filled day of learning how to use one of our favourite pieces of adaptive equipment, the trailrider. A lightweight, one-wheeled, environmentally friendly access vehicle that is maneuvered by a pilot and a porter (one who pulls and one who pushes). The TrailRider can take people with disabilities through virtually any terrain – from gentle walking paths to rugged mountain trails. The TrailRider is extremely comfortable and adaptable making it an excellent piece of equipment for almost any need.
