Do you have the right horse?
We're always on the lookout for the ideal therapy horse here at Healing Reins. Healing Reins is currently accepting only care-leased horses. We prefer horses who've had a career, such dressage, 4-H, roping, ranching or extensive trail riding. Miles and experience add up to the quiet, assured horse our riders need.
Equine Criteria( to fit into our program):
Sound at all three gaits (walk, trot and canter).
Able to walk, trot and canter in an arena.
Easy to get along with and have excellent ground manners (can be clipped and stand in cross ties).
Easy to catch in a paddock.
Free of vices, such as kicking and biting.
Between the ages of 6 and 21; the age of 18 is just about perfect.
Not over 16 hands.
