Capital Area Therapeutic Riding Association, Inc.

CATRA, the Capital Area Therapeutic Riding Association, located in Grantville, PA, is looking for volunteers to help with their animal therapy and horseback riding program.  Therapeutic riding helps children and adults with disabilities achieve their goals of muscle conditioning, improve balance, eye-hand coordination and helps the nervous system find and use undamaged pathways for improved body functioning.  This is done in a fun setting.  Riders enjoy friendships, improve self-esteem and increase socialization.  The exceptional horses used in this program are gentle, patient and obedient.  If you love horses, or ever wanted to own a horse, this is your chance to care for, and handle, very special equines.  CATRA adds animal therapy as well with an array of interesting animals such as miniature horses, goats, dogs that ride the horses, cats, rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens, ducks, and a pot bellied pig.  Scheduling to volunteer at CATRA is set up at your convenience.  You can donate an hour, or a whole afternoon.  Morning or afternoon is available 7 days a week, year round. Animal care is a never ending reality.  For those with a green thumb we need you too!  Flower beds need attention three seasons a year.

CATRA has something for everyone.  To let us know you are coming or for more information, please call 623-5553.  Visit the CATRA website at www.catra.net.  Don’t miss the opportunity to serve your community through this valuable, rewarding program serving persons with disabilities and animals who care!
