Get Involved

Reins of Hope exists because of the dedication and compassion of people like you! There are many ways to get involved:

Become a Volunteer

Volunteers are essential in maintaining a quality program! A volunteer’s primary responsibility is to help out the instructors with their classes and interact with the students and horses. Volunteers are also needed to help with the annual auction, trail rides, and other events.

Prepare Lunches

Volunteers are crucial to the program, so we like to show them our appreciation by serving them lunch throughout the week. Signing up to provide a lunch for the volunteers even once a month is a huge help!

Sponsor a Student or Horse

Reins of Hope will not turn a student away due to financial situation. Scholarships are an important means of supporting the organization. A donation of $60 will provide a student with six weeks of riding lessons. Also, we must take care of our therapists – our horses! Monetary or feed donations are welcome.


Reins of Hope is a not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organization; however, it does require financial support to care for our students and our equine therapists. Please consider supporting Reins of Hope financially; every dollar will benefit the students, and a student has never been turned away due to an inability to pay. All donations are tax-deductible.

In 2015 Reins of Hope served well over 167 riders ranging in age from 3 years to 78 years old and launched a veterans program.  We want to continue to do this and grow our program!  We are so blessed to be able to do what we are doing and couldn’t do it without your support.
