Abstract

Our goal is two-fold; we are rescuing horses and giving them a high noble purpose - rescuing loved ones and restoring meaning to their lives.

Guiding Reins offers an alternative to improve mental/physical health for all ages. Horses once destined for disposal create a unique and powerful heart-mind connection between human and equine. We regularly work with first responders, veterans, Wounded Warriors and the Department of Disabilities and Special Needs.
