We are actively seeking volunteers to serve on our Outreach-Events-Fundraising Committee. The committee’s goal is to create increased awareness of our programming for trauma survivors in New Jersey.
This is a remote opportunity, but volunteers need to be local to the Central New Jersey region. Presence and contacts in local community would be great! We are targeting Hunterdon, Somerset, Mercer, and Middlesex counties to grow and maintain our local awareness and support.
Currently we have 2 annual events. A comedy night (or event fundraiser) called "Swing into Spring" held on the Saturday closest to the Spring Equinox (March 21, 2020). The other is our Open House / Public Demo Day at the farm which is held on the first Sunday in June. We are open to additional ideas and events.
Mainly we seek the expertise of event planners, fundraising professionals, people with networking and advocacy outreach skills. We are also interested in volunteers active in the Central New Jersey region's community and veteran related issues.
SRoL is a volunteer run local nonprofit which provides mental & emotional healing, resiliency and personalized coping skills for trauma survivors with the assistance and guidance of horses. The majority of every dollar raised is allocated toward programming services. We have served over 700 Veterans and more than 1300 at risk teens since our beginning in 2012.
Please consider lending your skills and time to a very important piece of our dedicated mission.

About Spring Reins of Life - Horses, Humans & Healing
c/o: Hunt Cap Farms, 401 Main Street, Three Bridges, NJ 08887, US
Spring Reins of Life (Horses, Humans & Healing)'s MISSION is to provide a safe, healing and empowered path to peace, positive growth and self-guided recovery with the assistance of Horses as our guides for trauma survivors who do not want to, refuse to, or simply cannot "talk about it". We serve combat veterans, at risk teens & young bereaved children in New Jersey.
Spring Reins of Life (SRoL) is a non-profit 501c3 organization. We are an EAGALA Model program offering Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) which incorporates the use of horses for therapeutic intervention toward promoting emotional growth and healing. We do not offer any riding or mounted work in our program. While there are many benefits to horseback riding, the EAGALA model is a solution focused base that enhances the emotional benefits of behavioral rehearsal and experiential component that is displayed when observing the horses in free will interacting with clients. The core populations that we serve are combat veterans, at risk/high risk teens & young children with grief.
Animal assisted therapy with horses combines the positive emotional effects gained from the human/horse bond with opportunities to challenge and explore one's thoughts and internal struggles during activities with an equine partner. It is a therapeutic intervention that defeats the stigma often associated with traditional counseling, but more importantly, it is an intervention that works.
***Visitors and Volunteers Welcome! We do have a strict policy of keeping all visits to a scheduled appointment or meeting time. No walk-ins are allowed, this is for your safety, the safety of the horses and the farm. Thank you for understanding.
We'll work with your schedule.
