Spring Reins of Life, Inc.
Three Bridges, New Jersey, USA
MissionTo provide a safe, healing and empowered path to peace, positive growth and self-guided recovery for those suffering trauma and loss with the assistance of horses as our guides.
Spring Reins of Life serves groups of trauma survivors in the central New Jersey region, namely Veterans, Teens, Women, Children and more. We have learned that many trauma survivors either do not want to (or) simply cannot "talk about it". That is there the Horses can help!
What We DoSpring Reins of Life is dedicated to promoting psychological healing, emotional well-being and personal growth using the skills of mental health professionals and the assistance of horses.
Spring Reins of Life is an EAGALA Model (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association) certified program which provides group format EAP services for moderate to severe trauma survivors. ALL of our services are provided for no cost or very low cost based on community fundraising and public/private donations awarded to cover our programming expenses. This service is proving to be very effective for moderate to severe trauma survivors who either do not want to (or) simply cannot "talk about it".
