Rein and Shine
Rein and Shine is a PATH Intl. (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International) Premiere Accredited Facility, and has been providing horseback riding as therapy since 2001.
Rein and Shine is 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.
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.
EXCITING NEWS! Rein and Shine would like to announce that we will be offering an EQUESTRIAN SUMMER CAMP!
Located on a picturesque farm in Awendaw, SC, just north of Mt. Pleasant, the Rein & Shine program serves people with Autism, Downs Syndrome, MS, and more. For individuals with special needs, equine therapy has many physical benefits including improved muscle tone, balance, posture, coordination, and motor development. The students benefit emotionally from the program through increased confidence, and the joy and freedom associated with riding and bonding with the horses.
