Give Now

CATR is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, and we rely on both monetary and in-kind donations from individuals, foundations and businesses to support our programs. All donations to CATR are tax-deductible and provide an exceptional therapeutic opportunity for children and adults with disabilities.

Why make a donation?

Because your gift improves lives!

CATR serves over 170 children and adults each year. Students range from a four-year-old diagnosed with autism to a thirty-year-old veteran with traumatic brain injury to an eighty-year-old with a hearing impairment. With your support, all of these individuals have the unique opportunity to move beyond their disabilities through riding and interacting with horses at CATR. YOU can improve lives by making a gift to CATR today!
