Welcome to the
        Colorado Therapeutic Riding Center!

The Colorado Therapeutic Riding Center (CTRC) is a PATH Intl Premier Therapeutic Riding Center in Longmont, Colorado devoted, since 1980, to serving children and adults with disabilities. As the oldest and largest therapeutic riding center in Colorado, and one of the largest in the nation, CTRC serves over 700 riders through our dynamic programs and has an impressive work force of over 1,000 volunteers each year.

We provide services through core program areas such as Therapeutic Riding, Hippotherapy, All Abilities Integrated Summer Camps and Mini Troopers. Any of our offered equine assisted therapeutic services is far more than a mere pony ride. Rather, they are a complex and exciting means of therapy that produces tangible physical, psychological, cognitive, social, and educational benefits.

At CTRC, not only are the participants bodies nurtured but their minds and spirits as well. For over thirty years, we have witnessed the profound, life enhancing benefits of equine assisted therapeutic services and invite you to experience them yourself.

PAINT THE PONY!

PAINT THE PONY is the Colorado Therapeutic Riding Center's (CTRC) Annual Campaign. As a FUNDRAISER and a FRIENDRAISER Paint the Pony strives to raise much needed funds, recruit new volunteers and create a greater awareness about CTRC in our community.

Get the 2014 Paint the Pony Brochure and discover the powerful connection Yvonne & Kelli share due to their participation at CTRC and meet Jack who now can clearly be heard telling his loyal therapy pony Katie to "Walk on."

Your support makes chances that change lives possible! Give a rider a chance to say their first word, a horse a chance to be an unconditional best friend and a volunteer a chance to make a difference in their community.

If each rider and volunteer and staff member were to get 10 people in their lives to give $10 we would raise $50,000. The Power of Paint the Pony lies in our numbers. One of our teen volunteers brought Paint the Pony materials to his high school and asked friends and teachers to be "one of his ten people" he ended up with 22 people!!

Please give to Paint the Pony and share your Paint the Pony story with others!
