REINS is a place for our students to thrive! It is also a supportive community for our special riders and their brave families, people who rarely find a place where they are the majority.
Our mission is to provide physical and emotional therapy to a wide range of disabled children and adults through the use of carefully supervised horseback riding. The benefits of this therapy are both mental and physical and include normalization of muscle tone, increased balance and coordination, developments of speech and language, and improvements in body awareness and self-esteem.
I saw a child who couldn’t walk
Sit on a horse, laugh and talk.
I saw a child born into strife,
Take up and hold the reins of life…
