Don’t Miss Out On These
PAWS N’ READ
Area students – regardless of reading level – are invited to read to CATRA dogs, cats, horses, and other farm animals. The opportunity to read to animals in a safe, non-judgmental environment has been shown to strengthen reading skills of children and teens.
MINIATURE HORSE EXTRAVAGANZA
The Miniature Horse Extravaganza is a team of Miniature Horses that have been trained by CATRA volunteers under the guidance of CATRA co-founder, Ben Nolt.
HIGH HOPES MINATURE HORSE PROGRAM
Children ages 8-12 and their parent/guardian are invited to participate. The course is designed to promote healthy choices, effective communication skills and volunteerism using equine-assisted learning.
Each year CATRA hosts ‘Alternative Break’ students from various colleges and universities in the United States. Students typically spend 4 or 5 days volunteering at CATRA while learning more about the role and benefits of therapeutic riding for individuals dealing with a wide variety of special needs.
CATRA provides quality equine and animal-assisted therapeutic programs to the people of the Capital area.
Our vision is to be a center of excellence where equines and other animals enrich the lives of people of all abilities to enhance physical, spiritual, intellectual, mental, emotional, and social well-being through a holistic approach.
