AGCRA Thunder Mountain Chapter supports local CANTER Equestrian Therapy Organization

On May 8, 2021, the Thunder Mountain Chapter members had a great time supporting the local CANTER equestrian therapy organization located at 7388 East Chief Joseph Drive, Sierra Vista, AZ.  CANTER stands for the Cochise Area Network of Therapeutic Equestrian Resources.  CANTER is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit United Way organization that offers therapeutic horseback riding.  Additionally, CANTER is one of only three Premier Accredited Riding Centers in the state of Arizona.

CANTER’s vision is to serve all eligible individuals in Cochise County, AZ, using multiple riding instructors with diverse skills and training methods to safely and effectively meet the specific needs and requirements of its students.  In therapeutic riding, the student actively performs exercises on the horse.  The exercises are supervised according to a plan developed by CANTER instructors.

The Thunder Mountain Chapter members performed general maintenance projects throughout the CANTER property.  The Chapter members discovered their way around saddles as they learned how to clean and condition them.

Other Chapter members were no strangers to paintbrushes as they applied preservative to two wooden bridges on the CANTER equestrian trail.

They even had time for a photo break 🙂

The Chapter members had a glorious morning for this event.
