CAR’s therapeutic horseback riding is for riders with varying degrees of physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and/or mental health special needs. In 2015 CAR began to outgrow their home in Washoe Valley and ultimately moved to the beautiful Horseman's Park in old southwest Reno.  At this new location, CAR became a PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) International Premier Accredited Center, which the center prides themselves on. Each year CAR continues to grow their number of riders in the therapeutic horseback riding program. In 2018, CAR piloted a grief program for children who lost a parent. This program was a great success and CAR is working to collaborate with other organizations in the community to expand this program.
