Throughout the year CATRA is supported by a number of companies, clubs, businesses, churches, and other organizations. We deeply appreciate their support.

Activities depend upon day, time, and time of year.  All work is completed outside or in one of the facility’s barns. Volunteers will get dirty.

While volunteering at CATRA, groups may participate in a variety of ways including

  • Assisting with lessons
  • Cleaning stalls and paddocks
  • Sweeping
  • Gardening and lawn care
  • Stocking hay

Groups from 3 to 30 or more are welcome to volunteer at CATRA.  For larger groups please give us plenty of time to plan ahead for the schedule.


CATRA can schedule volunteer groups nearly any day of the year.  The length of time groups will volunteer typically ranges from a couple hours to 5 or 6.  We recommend just a few hours for our younger volunteer groups.  Groups may volunteer as frequently as they would like.  Individuals who enjoy their volunteer experience are welcome to come on their own to lend a hand.

  • Cleaning water troughs
  • Cleaning perimeters
  • Brushing horses
  • Painting fences
  • General maintenance and repair


All work will take place outside or in one of our barns. Dress appropriately. You will get dirty. You will also come into contact with hay, dust, and dander. We have a wide variety of animals. If you have allergies, be certain to bring allergy medication.
