CATR Seeks Volunteers

Johns Island’s Charleston Area Therapeutic Riding (CATR) will be offering two volunteer training classes in anticipation of its spring class schedule which begins next month. Volunteer training will be offered on Saturday morning, January 28, from 9:30 am to noon, and again on Tuesday afternoon, February 2, from 4:30 to 7:00 pm. Interested parties may attend either session to learn procedures for assisting CATR’s students during weekly classes. No previous experience working with horses is required.

For more information or to register for either of the sessions, email kbrookshire@catr-program.org or call 843-559-6040.

CATR, now in its 32nd year of operation, helps adults and children with disabilities to enjoy a more active and fulfilling life in partnership with horses at its 43-acre farm on River Road. It is currently serving more than 150 students with physical, developmental or emotional challenges.
