The mission of Southern Reins Center for Equine Therapy is to serve individuals with physical, cognitive and emotional disabilities and hardship by providing equine assisted activities and therapies to empower, inspire, nurture and succeed.
Southern Reins Center for Equine Therapy was founded in July of 2015 to serve people with disabilities and hardship in Mississippi, Tennessee and Arkansas. Operations originated in Nesbit, MS where the organization held a partial lease to begin its programming to serve the Mid-South.
The program offers support for individuals with autism, Down syndrome, spina bifida, stroke, cerebral palsy, developmental delay, ADD, spinal cord injuries, PTSD and more. Through equine assisted activities and therapies, participants experience improvements in quality of life, as well as cognitive, physical, emotional and social well-being.
People who use wheelchairs and walkers are able to walk tall in the saddle – looking down at everyone else atop their favorite therapy horse.
Riders with autism who do not want to touch or be touched reach willingly to gently pat their horse’s neck and mane – making a connection far beyond any words that can be spoken.
And for the girl with cerebral palsy, who was unable to brush her teeth or change her clothes, she is now able to do those small tasks we take for granted for the first time in her 21 years – just from riding a horse at Southern Reins.
