Fast (Ex)

Centaurs gain a 10-foot racial bonus to their speed.

Natural Armor (Ex)

Centaurs have tough skin, granting them a +2 natural armor bonus.

Natural Mount (Ex)

A centaur counts as having the Mounted Combat feat only for the purpose of meeting feat prerequisites, and substitutes the Acrobatic skill for any Ride skill prerequisites when acquiring feats that have Mounted Combat as a prerequisite. Because of his equine form, a centaur can wield a lance one-handed as if mounted and deals double damage with a lance while charging. A centaur can never gain the benefit of the Mounted Combat feat (or other similar feats or effects, such as Trick Riding) if ridden by another creature.

Undersized Weapons (Ex)

Although a centaur is Large, its upper torso is the same size as that of a Medium humanoid. As a result, they wield weapons as if they were one size category smaller than their actual size (Medium for most centaurs).
