Equine Assisted Learning & Psychotherapy
Thank you for your donations. The War Horse Project is an equine-assisted psychotherapy program intended for Canadian Forces members, Veterans, First Responders and Corrections Officers who have been adversely affected by trauma. This program has provided lasting and measurable benefits not achieved with conventional therapies alone.

The Story behind the Picture The Story behind the Picture
This Afganistan war veteran built a very special bond with Lilly, who does not like to have her face touched. As their relationship grew in trust and respect, Lilly allowed Andrew to touch her face.

Hope Reins is a not-for-profit organization established in 2011 and run by a dedicated team of staff and volunteers.

Among several collaborations, Hope Reins and The Phoenix Centre for Children & Families in Pembroke provide support to clients of all ages that have physical, mental, emotional issues and limitations in Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) and Equine Assisted Therapy (EAT) Programs. Participants discover the skills required to engage with horses in a unique learning environment. Our formative setting focuses on building communication and relationship skills; participants experience physical, mental and emotional changes that bring a renewed sense of self-confidence, healing and awareness.

Hope Reins is committed to creating programs that meet the diverse needs of our community. This commitment was the starting block for programs such as the War Horse Project, Pony Pals and our new soon-to-be launched program called YO Horse!.

What do we hope to accomplish? Quite simply ... to change lives.

Initiatives are funded in part by the Ontario Trillium Foundation.
