MISSION & PROGRAMS

Our organization provides programs involved with equine rescue & adoption
Our organization provides community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses.

100% of our total programs and services are horse-related.

Number of facilities/locations where horses used in our programs are HOUSED AND CARED for:
     1. Carmel Creek Ranch
     2. Russell Ranch

Our organization does not use foster facilities

Mission:
CANTER (Communication Alliance to Network Thoroughbred Ex-racehorses) is dedicated to providing Thoroughbred ex-racehorse opportunities for new careers after the finish line.

Summary of organization's goals, strategies to achieve the goals, accomplishments, and capabilities to meet the goals, including its long-term plans to sustain its programs:
CANTER's goals are to continue to accept, rehab and adopt off track Thoroughbreds. Over the past 11 years we have established a sustainable program by limiting the number of horses we accept, working with other like minded non-profits to work to place horses and continuing to fundraise and utilize grants.
     
     Our long terms plans to sustain the program is too continue to follow the basic strategy to spend less then what you have flowing in. We very carefully monitor our finances and accept horses based on our finances.

Horse Rescue, Rehabilitation, Retraining & Re-homing:
Overview of our programs involved with rescue, rehabilitation, retraining, re-homing and/or retirement:
     Horses accepted in the CANTER adoption program are sent to one of our contracted boarding facilities based on their soundness and geographic location. Upon arrival, the horses are evaluated for temperament by our volunteers and examined by one of our veterinarians for soundness and overall health. Injured horses begin a rehabilitation program created by our vet.
     
     CANTER utilizes both professional trainers and volunteers to train the horses. Once horses are sound, well adjusted and have had time off, horses will enter training. Groundwork training begins with teaching the horse basic ground manners and establishing trust between the horse and handler. Once the horse is comfortable with initial groundwork, the volunteer begins teaching the horse to lunge and ground drive. When the horse is confident, balanced, and routinely working well when longed with side reins and a saddle, the volunteer will begin riding lightly.
     
     Each step in training is taken only when the horse seems ready and confident in what he is being asked to do. Our program is completely flexible and we are always open to returning to more basic work until the horse is ready to move forward.
     
     All potential adopters are screened through our online adoption application. Each applicant is contacted in person and visits to ride the horses are scheduled accordingly. We check vet references on every adopter and often check trainer and stabling references as well. Each adopter is required to complete a follow up every 6 months for two years.

Community Outreach and/or Public Education:
Overview of our programs involved with providing community outreach and/or public education programs involving horses:
     Our largest and most successful community outreach is through our our highly successful “Trainer Listings” to place horses directly from the racetrack. These listings link horses retired racehorses looking for homes with the public looking to purchase. CANTER has the largest network of off track Thoroughbred listing. Reaching out to the community through our "trainer listings" helps place roughly 700+ horses a year in California alone. In addition to our listings we work with pony clubs and UC Davis to educate the public, and we sponsor a yearly award at the Woodside Prelim Challenge to promote and educate the public about OTTB's.

Our Programs/Activities involving animals other than horses:
 100% horse related
