Welcome to REINS

Riding Emphasizing Individual Needs and Strengths

Welcome to the REINS website! We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit Therapeutic Horsemanship Program located in Fallbrook, California. At REINS, children and adults with disabilities learn how to ride horses and have fun doing it. So we would like to invite you down to REINS to see the program first hand!

REINS UPDATES

What a great shot of "Mr. Chuy" at our Fun Day Horse Show this year! He's such a great #therapyhorse for our younger students to learn independent riding skills. We are thankful to have added him in our program the last year!

Support!

Whether you want to donate a horse, sponsor a rider, or contribute to the program, all help is truly appreciated. Donations are welcome in any form and any amount, so check out our Wish List. We would not be here today if it were not for the support and love of so many in our community.

Volunteer!

REINS wouldn’t be possible without its amazing staff of weekly volunteers. Volunteers make the program what it is by participating in various duties. Anywhere from leading horses during lessons to side walking with students to ensure safety, as well as grooming and tacking horses, and maintaining and improving the facility.

Ride!

REINS provides therapy to nearly 200 students with a wide variety of conditions. Meaningful and purposeful activities are used with the client based on their interests and needs. During lessons, clients can work to refine fine motor, gross motor, bilateral coordination, oral motor and visual motor skills.

About Us

REINS is a place for our students to thrive! It is also a supportive community for our special riders and their brave families, people who rarely find a place where they are the majority.

Our mission is to support the physical, mental and emotional health of disabled children and adults with therapeutic equine-assisted activities. 

I saw a child who couldn’t walk

Sit on a horse, laugh and talk.

I saw a child born into strife,

Take up and hold the reins of life…

– John Anthony Davies
