Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
"To provide personal growth and development through equine assisted therapeutic education and recreational activities."
REINS has been serving Sheboygan County for 34 years by providing equine assisted activities and therapies. REINS, Inc. is a non-profit Wisconsin corporation committed to improving the lives of those with special needs through individually structured classes using therapeutic interactions with horses. We are a premier therapeutic center accredited by the Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH, Intl.).
Last year people aged 3 to 70 with physical and cognitive disabilities and significant mental health needs were served. REINS, Inc. offers both therapeutic riding (TR) and Equine Facilitated Learning (EFL). Our EFL program is focused on serving "At Risk" Youth. Our riders are referred to us from schools, group homes, social service agencies, doctors and therapists. EFL goals and lessons are structured to meet students IEP’s and therapy goals and to increase knowledge retention over of traditional classroom break periods. We are able to provide 53 individuals per week with specialized Equine Assisted Activities and Therapies. Tuition covers 29 percent of the cost of this special program. Many of our students are unable to pay the tuition so REINS has a comprehensive scholarship fund. No student referred to REINS is turned away based on inability to pay.
