At REINS, children and adults with disabilities learn how to ride horses. This is an intense form of therapy that benefits a wide range of abilities.  Our current enrollment is nearly 200 weekly students who come from all over the counties of Orange, Riverside and San Diego. We also have the help of over 100 weekly volunteers who assist in all aspects of the program.

REINS began in a backyard in San Marcos, California in 1984 with a handful of disabled students and their devoted parents. We have since moved twice in our effort to embrace as many students as possible. In 1999, we purchased our permanent property in Fallbrook. In 2009, through a generous donation, we paid off our mortgage and are now able to devote our full attention to expanding the program, welcoming more students and increasing the quality of the therapy we provide.
