Community Programs

Rein in a Dream

Rein in a Dream is one of our community programs located at our premier therapeutic horsemanship center and accredited by PATH International; the national association for therapeutic horsemanship programs throughout the United States and abroad. Rein in a Dream is proud of its long-standing affiliation with PATH International. Rein in a Dream provides services to children and adults starting at two years of age. Most participants have varying degrees of psychological, behavioral, cognitive, or physical challenges. This community program’s focus is on the students connecting with the animals in a holistic way and in a stable, nurturing, environment. Developing a connection with animals has been proven to be very useful and effective in reaching children and adults with various trauma, mental health, and intellectual challenges. Incorporating animals in a therapeutic setting increases self-esteem and confidence; enhances communication and social skills; improves strength, coordination, and flexibility; and fosters empathy and compassion.
