At REINS, children and adults with disabilities learn how to ride horses. This is an intense form of therapy that benefits a wide range of abilities. Their current enrollment is nearly 200 weekly students who come from all over.
REINS is in need of volunteers to assist in all aspects of the program, the horses and the riders. Volunteers must be able to adhere to safety standards, follow directions from the program staff and provide services needed.
