About Courage Reins
In an effort to meet a growing need for effective therapy for individuals with special needs, Courage Reins was founded in 1998. As a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, the cause has been charitable in nature since its inception. We strive to make our services available to all who seek alternative therapy, no matter their income or ability to pay. Because of this, we rely heavily on donations in order to create sponsorships for our riders and offer our services at a reduced price. To date, this goal has been accomplished thousands of times over, which is a wonderful thing, but were always seeking additional funds to continue supporting Utahs children.
Since opening nearly 20 years ago, Courage Reins has seen tremendous growth. The organization now has 14 staff members, more than 100 active volunteers, and a herd of 20 donated horses. Were thrilled to welcome more than 100 participants each week who come from throughout the state to find healing, happiness, and strength. Our programs have evolved to include equine-assisted therapies such as Therapeutic Riding, Hippo, and Enhanced Therapy, Psychotherapy, Growth & Learning Activities and Natural Horsemanship. As the Board of Trustees and staff of Courage Reins, were committed to continuing providing high quality, effective, and exciting programs and services for years to come.
