Southern Reins Center for Equine Therapy serves individuals with physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities by providing equine activities and therapeutic riding.
Volunteers are needed to walk alongside our riders or lead the therapy horse, and we have opportunities weekday mornings and afternoons and all day Saturday.
Southern Reins is a place where small victories are pivotal achievements.
People who use wheelchairs and walkers are able to walk tall in the saddle – looking down at everyone else atop their favorite therapy horse.
Riders with autism who do not want to touch or be touched reach willingly to gently pat their horse’s neck and mane – making a connection far beyond any words that can be spoken.
And for the girl with cerebral palsy, who was unable to brush her teeth or change her clothes, she is now able to do those small tasks we take for granted for the first time in her 21 years – just from riding a horse at Southern Reins.
