CANTER is unique in that it does not have one central facility, but many so that it may best address the needs of it's horses. CANTER maintains ownership of upwards of 35 horses at any given time, who are often moved to locations that best suit their rehabilitative needs.
Buckeystown: Our Buckeystown Location is just outside of Frederick, Maryland, and acts as our hub for horses who are able to rehabilitate outside who are coming from Charles Town, Laurel, Bowie and Pimlico. 300 acres of rolling fields with streams and knee-high grass enables our horses to live happily in herds. After a 3 month let-down at this farm, our horses come out happy and ready for a job. CANTER keeps upwards of 15 horses at this location.
Damascus: Our Damascus location acts as one of our retraining facilities for 1 horse. This location boasts and indoor and two outdoor arenas, as well as extensive trail riding.
Centreville: This location is several hundred acres of grassy pastures and acts as our primary layup facility for horses coming from Delaware Park and Fair Hill training center. CANTER keeps upwards of 10 horses at this facility.
Camden: This location serves as layup location for our catastrophically injured horses, as well as horses who have been rehabilitated and are entered into our retraining program. Jessica and Kurt Morthole (very active volunteers at Delaware Park) have a lovely 10-stall facility with all-weather ring, extensive trail riding and lovely grass-filled pastures.
North Carolina Locations
CANTER Mid Atlantic has recently expanded operations down to North Carolina due to the demand for Thoroughbred sporthorses in the area.
Cameron: Our newest location is just south of the RDU area, on Rt. 1 in Cameron NC. Horses arrive here from our Maryland locations for retraining and placement into new homes.
Southern Pines: Our Southern Pines location is located on our director's private farm, where horses are brought for retraining. The area, known for it's fabulous sand footing and plethora upper level riders makes it perfect for the rehabbing thoroughbred.
