Equine Assisted Psychotherapy, Equine Assisted Learning and Development and Professional Education are the core programs at Hope Reins. Our facilitating teams include licensed therapists and equine specialists who are experts in horse behavior. Our therapists specialize with particular populations (i.e., eating disorders, ADHD, behavior disorders, depression, anxiety, etc.). Our team approach allows us to provide the highest quality services for our clients, and each individualized program is designed to meet your needs.
Staff at Hope Reins are trained by EAGALA, the Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association, and hold basic and/or advanced certifications.
