Private and Private Foundation Donations/Giving
At our facility, Horses are relied upon to help people who are struggling with the internal injuries from trauma. Often when trauma survivors are asked to “talk about it” the pain and triggers are too much to verbalize. Trust is no longer present making it even harder. Horses are generous, compassionate and non-judgmental beings. They are also large prey animals who use body language to communicate both safety and trust. For most of our clients who either do not want to, or simply cannot talk about it…the Horses offer a place to learn to bond and trust again on individual terms, all without saying a single word. At Spring Reins of Life, Horses are our partners in healing those who are over-burdened with the effects of severe trauma. We remain amazed and blessed to be witness to how an 1100lb being can instill unique coping skills for each human who seeks their solace.
We are equally amazed with examples of how humans help humans. The ability of so many to be so compassionate in the wake of trauma or disaster is truly heartwarming. But for some, every day is a trauma disaster…children who have experienced the loss of a parent or loved one, teens who are involved in dangerous environments they cannot find a way out of, and soldiers who cannot let go of the suffering or death they have experienced.
We need your help to address the increasing demand to find alternative measures that will treat and heal emotional trauma. Our program is often the entry door for someone who needs help but is reluctant to seek traditional mental healthcare; your support of Spring Reins of Life can change, may even save lives.

Without any appropriation instruction funds will be divided equally over the three populations (a percentage of which will cover operational/administrative costs).
