CANTER Horse Blogs- come follow along!

CANTER Mid Atlantic blogs have been a smashing success as indicated by our thousands of visitors.  In an effort to chronicle the ups and downs of Thoroughbred Retraining, we have several people who have volunteered to write about their day-to-day experience with individual horses. This has proven to provide a wonderful learning opportunity for the Thoroughbred-buying public, as well as being an amazing opportunity for our horses. Our goal to bring each horse from the racetrack to recognized competition has been going swimmingly, and we love the support along the way. If you haven't read the blogs, we hope you will, and join in on the journey.

Donate Now and support Horses in Need

CANTER Mid Atlantic, like everybody, is feeling the crushing effects of today's economy. CANTER Mid Atlantic is funded solely by the kindness of people who believe in our mission. Nearly 70% of our funding comes from donations that are under 50$, so you can see that indeed, every dollar makes a difference. Please consider donating even $5.00 towards caring for Thoroughbreds who were not lucky enough to be successful at the racetrack. Payments can be made directly to the organization through our Pay Pal link, Donation Address or directly to our Veterinarian. (Please contact CANTER if you'd like to send payment to vet). All donations go directly toward the care of Thoroughbreds until they find a new home.

Donate Now!
