Mission Statement

Reins To Recovery, Inc. Therapeutic Riding Center is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to encouraging the physical and mental development of children and adults with social, emotional, psychological, or physical disabilities. The program also is effective in addressing the needs of the children and adults who have been victims of violence or abuse as well as for youth at risk. Reins To Recovery's equine-facilitated approach incorporates cognitive, behavioral, psychological, and physical goals to increase self-confidence, self-esteem, physical independence, and social awareness.

Description

T.R.A.I.L.S. is a therapeutic riding program for persons with disabilities. Individuals with almost any cognitive, physical and/or emotional disability can benefit from therapeutic riding, a safe and supervised interaction with equines.

Because horseback riding gently and rhythmically moves the rider's body in a manner similar to a human gait, riders with physical disabilities often show improvement in flexibility, balance and muscle strength.

For individuals with mental or emotional disabilities, the unique relationship formed with the horse can lead to increased confidence, patience and self-esteem.

The sense of independence and acceptance found through these activities with the horse benefits all.

Individuals with the following disabilities commonly participate and benefit from equine facilitated therapy and activities:

Muscular Dystrophy
Cerebral Palsy
Visual Impairment
Down Syndrome
Mental Retardation
Autism
Multiple Sclerosis
Spina Bifida
Emotional Disabilities
Brain Injuries
Spinal Cord Injuries
Amputations
Learning Disabilities
Attention Deficit Disorder
Deafness
Cardiovascular accident/Stroke
