Field cleanup
Filled a truck with manure - fringe benefit of taking it home for free garden compost!

Tired of your kids staring at their screens? Would you like to spend some time outdoors with family or friends? Clean up, rake leaves, or wack some weeds to get our horse pastures ready for the busy spring months. Get some fresh air and help our 4-legged therapists.

We are seeking tough outdoors types who do not mind the chilly weather and want a work-out. Dress accordingly. In addition we do have some indoor projects that can be divided up so only 2 persons per project max (and space to distance), the indoor projects involve organization and deep cleaning. Outdoors would be anything that needs repairing and basic pasture cleanup and maintenance. Available times are Saturdays 11am-2pm or Sundays 12pm-2pm. Children are welcome, ages 13 and under must be accompanied/ supervised by a parent or guardian.

This is a great opportunity for:

  • Families
  • Students needing service hours
  • Church/service groups
  • Company volunteer events
Currently, we are only scheduling 4 volunteers per slot to maximize social distancing. Slots will be cancelled if weather proves dangerous for travel.

You can sign up directly here: https://signup.com/go/xVOAKOH or email volunteer@springreinsoflife.org if you have any questions, or would like to arrange for a larger group of volunteers.

We hope to see you at the farm!

About Spring Reins of Life - Horses, Humans & Healing

Location:

c/o: Hunt Cap Farms, 401 Main Street, Three Bridges, NJ 08887, US

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
