Equine Assisted Learning is a way to experience change in a hands-on way by challenging people to look at themselves and the world in a new way. People who have struggled to make progress or achieve their treatment goals in the past have made significant breakthroughs with the aid of equine assisted learning. Loving Rein’s mission is to provide equine assisted educational learning where humans, horses, and hearts are reigned together to bring emotional, mental, physical and social wellness for adults, children and families. Many children and families unfortunately can not afford equine assisted learning due to economical challenges in their families. We do not want anyone to miss out on this opportunity based on financial need. No amount is to small. For a contribution of $60 a child can receive one weekly session of equine assisted learning. Won’t you join us in helping out our children. After all, it takes a village to raise a child!!
