Zak Roy Yoballa:

Although he looked like a centaur, technically he wasn't.  He was the son of Philyra and of the Titan Cronos.  Cornos, hiding his lust from his wife Rhea, turned himself into a horse and because of this their progeny was half-horse.  

Chiron was also unlike the centaurs because he was so wise and balanced.  Talented in warfare and music, hunting and medicine, Chiron was the personal teacher of several Greek heros including Jason and Achilles.   His friendship with Apollo was legendary and he so impressed the gods that upon his death Zeus put him in the sky as the constellation Centaurus.
