The Capital Area Therapeutic Riding Association (CATRA) in Grantville, PA, needs volunteers for everything from helping with riding lessons to cleaning stalls, storing hay, feeding and watering horses, and any other kind of animal farm work. We have no minimum time commitment. No special skills are required. It takes from 1 to 4 volunteers for each rider, and we have over 125 riders each week, so we need a lot of volunteers!

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
