With a focus on developing a relationship with the horse, Natural Horsemanship clients gain confidence, empathy, emotional connection, self-awareness and self-regulation. Along with beneficial lessons in trust, respect and clear boundaries, clients also develop physical coordination and motor skills and develop resilience.
NOTE: All clients at Courage Reins benefit from donor sponsorships. We want this to be a place of healing for all, and we do not discriminate based on ability to pay. As you can see from the full cost breakdown below, there is much to cover financially with every therapy session, but the total cost is not what we ask our clients to provide. Instead, we offer a lesser rate to keep this experience affordable and rely on donations from sponsors to make the difference. As a nonprofit, every contribution received helps with this cause. If, as a client, you find yourself in a position to pay for your sessions in full, please let us know so we can reallocate sponsorship funds and offer further support to families in need. Thank you.
