Hope Reins exists to provide rescued equine a forever home as they bring about hope, healing and change in the lives of those faced with various hurts, loss or traumas.
Hope Reins is a nonprofit founded in 2006 and is volunteer operated. It has served hundreds of children and families and rescued as well as been a forever home to 14 equine since its creation. The overall goal is to encourage and empower each person toward personal growth, both physical and emotional, so they may be healthy, positive and productive members of their community, family, school and work place. Because the equine used in the program have been rescued from situations of severe abuse, neglect and abandonment or have overcome some form of difficulty in their lives, a common bond is formed allowing walls to come down. It is through the care of and interaction with these equine that healing begins as each teach the other the true meaning of unconditional love and how to trust again. It has been proven that these wonderful animals can do amazing things beyond our comprehension in a therapeutic sense. Other aspects of this program are proven to instill and develop character, focusing on the importance of hard work, integrity and commitment, as well as the value of hope, faith and family.
