Covered Arena Give Now

On October 16, 2016, we celebrated the Grand Opening of the Charleston Area Therapeutic Riding Murray Stanton Neale Arena!

Our covered arena has already made a major impact on the programs we provide to individuals with disabilities in our community.  Since the completion of our covered arena:

  • All students have benefited from consistent lessons.
  • New programs and extended hours have allowed even more individuals to participate in therapeutic riding at CATR.  In 2017, CATR offered to therapeutic riding students:
    • A six-week summer therapeutic riding session
    • A four-day summer camp
  • CATR has contributed to the enhancement of the therapeutic riding industry through PATH Intl. educational workshops and certifications.  In 2016 and 2017, CATR offered:
    • A three-day PATH Intl. Advanced Instructor Preparation Course
    • A four-day PATH Intl. Instructor Workshop and Certification
    • A dressage and biokinetics clinic by Susanne Winslade
    • On September 9, 2017, CATR is offering a full-day Volunteer Conference & PATH Intl. State Meeting and Education Day
We are thrilled with all that has been accomplished because of our covered arena and are grateful to all who have invested in CATR's exciting future!

You can still be a part of our arena! Naming opportunities are available as we continue to raise funds for the ongoing maintenance of our new facility.  Please visit our Naming Opportunities page or contact Murray S. Neale at to learn more.

Thank you to all who have helped us Raise the Roof!
