Hope Reins Foundation is a 501(c)3, non-profit, Equine Assisted Therapies program. Hope Reins Foundation offers mental health services to families and youth, individuals, veterans, and corporations. Our team is certified in the EAGALA model of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy.
Our herd of 12 horses and 2 donkeys consists of 8 geldings, 5 mares, and 1 stallion as well as rescue horses. Our herd is a very talented group of Paso Fino Horses. We have partnered with Rocking Double H Paso Fino Horses, a Paso Fino Farm & Rescue that has a wonderful program for rehabilitating horses. These horses willingly partner with our clients on their mental health journey.
Hope Reins services are available in the Pacific Northwest Panhandle of Idaho in Kootenai, Bonner, Shoshone and Benewah Counties. Nestled in the trees of North Idaho we have a fair amount of weather but we work outside as much as possible so our clients can have a truly experiential session with the horses. Equine Assisted Psychotherapy offers clients the experience to externalize their emotions, realize their goals and come up with solutions within themselves.
