because your contribution to Guiding Reins Endowment Fund goes straight to work helping veterans, first responders and others. Most donations are $1000, but range from $250 to $5000
Guiding Reins believes the connection between people and horses can assist those dealing with the challenges of trauma, addiction, PTSD, and/or depression. Will you help us help them?
Veterans and first responders give so much to keep our communities safe. Giving back to them is very important to us.
Difficulties managing moods, low self esteem, stress and even grief can impact many areas of life. Counseling can provide helpful tools in managing life’s challenges.
Continuing education to keep our instructors current with their certifications and best practices.
Routine veterinary care for a healthy horse includes dental care, de-worming and vaccinations.
Some programs are available to help pay for the veteran's or first responder's therapy, yet often their family members need help, too.
The amount and type of feeds depends on the horse’s type, age, weight, and other factors.

If you are a horse owner and feed grain or bagged forage (for example, alfalfa cubes, hay stretcher, balancer) to your horses, it is as easy as clipping your "proof of purchase" seal (outlined with a dotted line and a little picture of scissors on the bag) and dropping them off at these locations:

This is the list of feed companies that participate: Southern States, Triple Crown, Pro-Elite, and Legends. THIS INCLUDES ALL FEEDS AND FORAGES.
If you need us to pick up your bags and clip them for you just let us know.
