BUY A BOARD TODAY and give the gift of accessibility tomorrow. Please consider donating $100 to help us build the ADA ramp we desperately need for our new modular building!
Thanks to grants from the Oregon Community Foundation and The Collins Foundation, we were finally able to purchase a much-needed modular unit this year. Unfortunately, we did not receive all the funding necessary to complete the project and we still need to build a ramp. The total cost is $5,000 and we are hoping to partner with fifty fine folk to help us get ‘er done!
We have multiple bids on new and used steel ramps and the cost to build from scratch. We have settled on the most cost-effective solution and have found a builder willing to discount his labor and purchase all the necessary materials at his cost!
We only need to sell 50 boards to complete our project!
Every gift, no matter the size, makes a huge difference. Your donation to Healing Reins Therapeutic Riding Center directly supports our mission: “to heal with horses”. We are honored to see healing and hope every day as a result of our horse-centered therapies which include Therapeutic Riding, Therapeutic Carriage Driving, Equine Facilitated Psychotherapy and mental health services, physical therapy using equine movement/Hippotherapy and Veterans Horsemanship. Each of our horses receives quality feed and top notch care, our facility is immaculate and organized and the safety, health and well-being of our riders is our number one concern.
All of our instructors are certified through PATH International, and volunteers must attend trainings and demonstrate capability and care before entering our programs. We keep our rider fees affordable, subsidizing each rider and offering financial aid to families and individuals who demonstrate the need for assistance. Healing Reins’ ability to fulfill its mission, meet the growing demand for our services, and expand our outreach into the community is dependent on fundraising, and so we thank you for making a donation to Healing Reins Therapeutic Riding Center.
The Healing Reins difference:
- All programs encourage independence and improve quality of life.
- All money stays in our community, serving the local economy and people of Central Oregon.
- All horses receive the best quality care.
- Healing Reins serves all ages and abilities.
- Healing Reins educates the community about disabilities and therapy options with barn tours, public relations events and educational efforts.
- Healing Reins riders and volunteers learn horsemanship skills, problem-solving skills and practical tools that will enrich their lives even after they leave our program.
Thank you for your support! If you are unable to donate financially but have tack, horse equipment, office supplies or other items you would like to give, please contact program director Polly Cohen at .
Help Support a Horse
Healing Reins Therapeutic Riding Center’s unique therapy horses are the backbone of our program. Our horses need daily care to stay in premium shape for their riders. Yearly costs average $2,500 per horse, and while some of our horses have been sponsored, many are awaiting supporters like you to provide the funding for their care. You can use our secure online donation system on this page, or feel free to print out the paper application here: Healing Reins Horse Sponsorship form
Your donation of $2,500 (or $208.00/month) will give one horse everything he/she needs for one full year. Upkeep for our horses involves new shoes, hay, feed, supplements and veterinary and dental care. Sponsor one of our fine program horses in full, or consider sponsoring one half – you choose which end! Your gift will be recognized in various ways, including a wall plaque bearing your name and web site and social media acknowledgment.
Sponsorship does not include riding privileges, but we’d love you to visit your sponsored horse anytime, and volunteers and horse “buddies” are always needed!
Help Support a Rider
Please help us support the many children, teens, and adults who need the services that only Healing Reins Therapeutic Riding Center can provide. You can donate on our secure online donation button on this page, or download and print out our donation form, here: Sponsor a Rider form
Sixty-five percent of our program participants are from low-income homes in our community and would not be able to enroll without financial aid. Participants are referred for our unique therapies by medical and mental health providers and other agencies in the community who rely on Healing Reins to provide critical collaborative care services that improve quality of life.
While the fully burdened cost to Healing Reins to provide services for one person is actually $935, the maximum fee charged to enroll one child, teenager, or adult in a 10-week program session is $350. We know how important our work is which is why we work so hard to fundraise. Fundraising events, grants opportunities and annual giving help keep costs low for our riders so that as many individuals as possible can experience our unique and effective therapies. Scholarships are provided based on a sliding scale and as available.
Your donation of $350.00 today will give the gift of strength, freedom, independence and joy to someone challenged with disabilities and special needs.
Donations of needed items helps us to reduce our program costs. Every dollar we don’t have to spend buying equipment or supplies also helps us to address the growing demand for scholarships. Sixty-five percent of our program participants come from low-income families and cannot afford to enroll without financial assistance.
If you have one of these items to donate or would like to help us out by purchasing something for our programs, please contact Polly Cohen, Program Director at
