Therapeutic Riding is the core of our program. Certified instructors, with trained volunteers, assist riders to achieve goals, acquire horsemanship skills, and establish a special bond with their horses.

We serve children and adults with a wide range of special needs, such as cerebral palsy, developmental delays, sensory integration disorder, Down Syndrome, traumatic brain injuries, paraplegia, learning disabilities, multiple sclerosis, stroke, mental health issues and behavior challenges. Physicians, therapists, counselors, teachers, family members and friends refer participants to CTRC. Participants may come to CTRC as individuals or as part of a school, recreation, therapy or other group. No clinical diagnosis is necessary to participate; however, participants must have a need for our specialized, therapeutic environment.
