CATRA Volunteering Day

Close to the beginning of the spring semester, I was walking around and saw this flyer about an equestrian club team. Of course I joined! :)
Today I went with part of the group to CATRA, which is a therapeutic riding center near-ish to me.
The group of us groomed the horses.
Then we helped with the lessons. I was a side walker who helped with balance and talking.  It was alot of fun. 
Now, there was also an assortment of other animals on top of horses.

Including this nearly 40 year old pony!

There were horses of all sizes. 
From Miniatures
to horse-sized.

This *jokingly* was my favorite horse. Could hold five riders with no problem. 
In all, today was a lot of fun and I can't wait to do more like it. :)


  1. I did my internship at a Therapeutic Riding center! It was so much fun, and being able to see the students progress was amazing, even in just the few months I was there. I wish I had lived closer so I could have continued long term.

    1. That's awesome!
      My goal is to do more volunteering there. :)
