Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To offer the most miraculous benefits of horseback riding to any persons challenged by physical, mental,or emotional disabilities that wish to participate.
Reins of Hope, Inc. is a non for profit certified community based therapeutic riding center that benefits individuals challenged by physical, mental and emotional disabilities. All of our center instructors are certified through NARHA; this process can take up to one year and prepares instructor to be safe and thorough.
We are proud to provide opportunities for people with varying ability levels to challenge themselves physically and emotionally and to set goals to improve their quality of life via the horse. Training professionals to support and facilitate this process, educating the public about the positive impact of the human/animal bond and setting standards for safe and effective equine facilitated therapy/ activities will continue to dictate our growth.
More than 30,000 individuals with disabilities are served each year through these types of programs. The American Occupational Therapy Association and the American Physical Therapy Association as a valuable adjunct to traditional forms of therapy recognize equine Facilitated Therapy and Activities..
This center gives the opportunity for any person with disabilities the ability to benefit from the great effects of horseback riding. Some of the benefits include: Improved joint mobility, coordination, relaxation of spasticity, increased muscle power, self confidence and much more. Also 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.
We are currently in the process of reopening and are in need of help with the fundraising. Reins of Hope, offers riding lessons to any person with disabilities, regardless of ability to pay. We would like to continue this practice however we need sponsors to make this possible. If you would like to become a supporter of Reins of Hope, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (352) 410-6648 and ask to speak to Kristina.
