Donations contributed to this fund will be used for rider scholarships.  Families are never turned away due to lack of ability to pay.  Your contribution will allow CATRA to continue to serve the needs of the community.

Horse Show Ribbons

CATRA RibbonsEvery Summer CATRA hosts 4 regional horse shows.  The shows are open to the public.  Groups for both typical needs and special needs riders are offered.  Ribbons through 8th place are awarded.  Your contribution to the Horse Show Ribbon fund offsets the significant cost of the show ribbons.

Animal Care
