Welcome to Rein and Shine!
At Rein and Shine, our mission is to create and sustain an equine therapy facility where people with disabilities of all kinds can learn, grow and heal. We are a registered non-profit organization, dedicated to providing an alternative method of healing to children and adults with physical, emotional, social, and/or cognitive disabilities.
You see, a horse's three-dimensional gait provides movement unparalleled for therapeutic benefit to the rider with a physical disability. The movements stimulate the rider's trunk and pelvis in a manner that closely resembles the normal gait of a human walk. This input produces specific physical changes in the rider and promotes normalization of tone, postural improvement, increased motor skills, improvements in balance and coordination, and increased strength. In essence, riding allows our students to experience feelings, sensations, and emotions that they often times cannot get without the partnership..... of a horse!
We are proud to be a PATH Intl. (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International) Premiere Accredited Facility, and we have been providing horseback riding as therapy since 2001.
