Handy (pictured here) is one of our therapy horses at Reins. He works with children ages 1-5 who have experienced trauma.

Most of these children do not have words to describe what happened or how they feel; instead they act out their feelings through behaviors. The horses teach these kids what being safe feels like and how to express their feelings.


We are thankful for our therapy horses at Reins.


“Horses are teachers of self-awareness. They are keenly alert, intuitive, emotional, and authentic animals. 

Like humans, horses are social beings that live together in herds with defined hierarchies, roles, responsibilities, and relationships very similar to our family systems.

​Equine-assisted psychotherapy offers the client new opportunities and choices for relationship and emotional growth.” – Joan Rieger, MA LPC
