Healing Reins Therapeutic Riding Center was founded in 1999 and is a 501 © 3 non-profit organization. The organization earned its distinguished status as a PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) International Premier Accredited Center in 2001 and maintains that designation through a rigorous reaccreditation process that occurs every five years. Healing Reins is the only center of its kind in Oregon east of the Cascades.
The facility offers an ADA-approved facility complete with indoor riding arena, a dedicated and confidential mental health arena, an outdoor arena, two round pen learning areas, and a Sensory Integration/Challenge Trail course with beautiful views of Mt. Bachelor and the Oregon Cascade range. Professionally certified staff are supported by trained volunteers and specially selected program horses to deliver year-round services.
Healing Reins relies on our generous community for support, both in the arena and in other areas of our daily operations. In addition to providing volunteer support, the Central Oregon community contributes generously to Healing Reins through private donations, corporate sponsorships, in-kind contributions, and participation in our annual benefit auction, “Diamonds & Dust”, and our annual on-line event, “The Triple Crown FunRacer”.
Programs continue to grow to address community demand, and in our mission “to heal with horses” we remain dedicated to our founding values of safety, respect, compassion, excellence and honesty.
