Chatham Area Network for Therapeutic Riding

Chatham CountyVisit our WebsiteTherapeutic Riding



Our mission is to provide equine assisted activities and therapies (EAAT) in Central NC to individuals with physical, emotional or developmental disabilities, alongside their typically developing peers when possible; to educate our community about people with disabilities and equine related activities; to link people with disabilities to equine professionals; and to engage people in volunteer work to achieve a positive result for themselves and for their community.


CAN-TR is the only equine-assisted riding program in Chatham County with NARHA-certified instructors and Physical Therapy that offers hippotherapy, therapeutic riding and mentoring to children and adults with special needs, in an inclusive setting when possible.  We work through a network of farms, which means that there’s probably a CAN-TR riding program near you. It’s easier than ever to bring the benefits of equine-assisted therapy to your child.
