Spring Reins of Life has successfully served more than 3,000 trauma survivors in a group format since opening our arena gates in June 2012. We faced some extremely challenging times from 2020 to 2023 to stay open. We are survivors - just like our clients. With the pending mental health crisis upon New Jersey we are preparing to be ready, as the horses (the Herd) will be needed here in Hunterdon county more than ever!

The SRoL executive board was rebuilt in October 2023. We have four strong officers in place. We have one committed trustee. We are searching for additonal board herd members to complete the forge to carry this mission of miracles forward. The operating budget combined with the programming budget is small (under $200k) so with a good team in place it is very doable. With that little amount of annual funding - we produce HUGE things for groups of trauma survivors who are not able to advance in traditonal "talk" therapies.

If you love horses and/or care about supporting mental health for veterans, teens, women, or children - please get in touch with us. SRoL will supply you with a complete annual reports history and a role description of where our current gaps are. Thank you in advance. There is great reward in knowing that your efforts directly impact the lives and well-being of our clients in a long-lasting way.

If you are skilled at any of the following, currently or retiree - please reach out.

  • Project manager (task master) / Business Analyst
  • Fundraising expert (manage annual online campaign / create residual income opportunities)
  • Grantwriting (we rely on 3 to 4 per year totalling $50-75k)
  • Volunteerism (local recruiting and creating corporate volunteerism roster)

Thank you in advance!

Mission Statement

Spring Reins of Life (Horses, Humans & Healing). Our mission is to provide a safe, healing and empowered pathway to peace for trauma survivors in New Jersey. The assistance of horses on this journey provides options for self-guided recovery in unique ways of personalized coping skills. This is all accomplished without any previous horse experience and without having to "talk about it". There have been more than 3,000 clients through with the Herd since opening our arena gates in June 2012.

Description

Spring Reins of Life (SRoL) is a non-profit 501c3 volunteer-run organization. We are an EAGALA Model program offering Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) incorporating 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 and there is no horse experience needed to gain full benefits. The EAGALA model is an experiential, solution focused base that utilizes a team facilitation approach (licensed mental health professional, certified horse expert, and horses (and/or donkeys!) that allows clients to find their own unique best answers to complex and layered trauma based issues.

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! Contact us about Group Volunteering. 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 - as well as the privacy of our client groups. Thank you for understanding.
