The Capital Area Therapeutic Riding Association (CATRA) in Grantville is growing its board of directors. Since 1985 CATRA has offered an opportunity for Capital Area residents from all generations with all types of special and typical needs to establish an atmosphere of support, respect, and health in an equestrian farm environment while offering a therapeutic riding experience to those able to benefit from it. CATRA also offers opportunities and events well beyond its weekly therapeutic riding program including its Miniature Horse and Equine-Assisted Programming as well as Paws N’ Read in support of childhood literacy. All interested individuals, especially those with strategic planning, legal, IT infrastructure, or human services experience encouraged to contact CATRA’s Executive Director, Mike Babbitt, at Mike@catra.net.

CATRA is a horse farm in Grantville, PA, where special needs children and adults ride horses for therapy and recreation. We believe in pet therapy, as well, so we have many animals besides horses, including dogs, cats, donkeys, mules, goats, miniature horses, guinea pigs, rabbits, chickens, and a pig. The farm is run by volunteers. Social opportunities for rider families and volunteers include horse shows, 4-H, picnic, Valentine party, bowling party, holiday party, and organization fundraisers CATRA-Thon and the "Miles for Smiles" Motorcyle Ride.
We'll work with your schedule.
