Our horses have been carefully screened for suitability to work safely and effectively with our students. Those horses that pass the screening are then specially trained in activities unique to therapeutic riding, such as riders being loaded from wheelchairs or riding in prone or other positions.
Many of the CANTER horses are borrowed from individuals throughout the community. CANTER horses are schooled by experienced horseback riders to keep them from getting bored with their jobs. It takes a very special horse to work for CANTER, and we appreciate the animals for their contributions to the well-being of our students.
