Support!

Whether you want to donate a horse, sponsor a rider, or contribute to the program, all help is truly appreciated. Donations are welcome in any form and any amount, so check out our Wish List. We would not be here today if it were not for the support and love of so many in our community.

Volunteer!

REINS wouldn’t be possible without its amazing staff of weekly volunteers. Volunteers make the program what it is by participating in various duties. Anywhere from leading horses during lessons to side walking with students to ensure safety, as well as grooming and tacking horses, and maintaining and improving the facility.

Ride!

REINS provides therapy to nearly 200 students with a wide variety of conditions. Meaningful and purposeful activities are used with the client based on their interests and needs. During lessons, clients can work to refine fine motor, gross motor, bilateral coordination, oral motor and visual motor skills.

About Us

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…

– John Anthony Davies

“Our Foundation seeks out organizations who work with children who have physical or learning challenges.  REINS of Fallbrook has proven to be the best example of positively impacting lives.

The Staff and Volunteers are unwavering in their dedication to each student.  They are knowledgeable, professional caring and loving. 

This year, 2015 will be our fourth year to fund their October Hoedown Fundraiser…we consider it an honor.”
