Order Your 2014
CANTER Calendars

In response to popular demand, and because we have so many stunning CANTER "alumnae" out there, we put together a 2014 CANTER calendar.

The cost is $20, which includes mailing and all proceeds go to support the horses!  You can use our PayPal link at the bottom of the donations page -- please remember to put a note in the memo line that says "Calendar(s)" and do include your address so that we can mail them.

They make great holiday gifts!


CANTER New England would like to thank Jerry, Sacha and the entire crew at Winding Brook Farm Equestrian Center in Derry, NH for holding an incredible fundraiser for us on Sunday, October 13th!



A trio of champions!

Support CANTER now and receive a beautiful tribute to three great fillies: Horses of the Year Rachel Alexandra, Zenyatta, and Havre de Grace!




Longtime CANTER supporter and award-winning photographer Patricia McQueen will provide this 8x12 photo to any CANTER supporter making donations of $75 or more. Patricia is a regular contributor to the Thoroughbred Times and has had photos appear in The Blood-Horse, Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred, The Horse of Delaware Valley, California Thoroughbred and others. She created this tribute to recognize the first time in history that fillies have won three consecutive Horse of the Year titles.

In addition to the horses being sold by their racing trainers, CANTER has some beautiful adoptive placement horses—several of whom have been started under saddle—waiting for great homes!

dewamere-trotting-0512 Dewamere is an adoptive horse that needs surgery for a racing-related injury.  If you would like to help Dew by contributing toward the cost of surgery, please visit our Donation page.
