Our Mission

The mission and purpose at REINS OF HOPE, INC. is to enhance lives, provide solace, rejuvenation, and healing for children and adults with physical, mental, emotional and social challenges through equine-assisted activities and therapies.

Our Founder

Becky Bunnell is a PATH International Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor and has over 12 years of instructing experience. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from Ball State University and a Masters in Education from Georgia State University. She rode on the Ball State Equestrian Team and continued to compete in the Hunter arena. Currently, she is a member of the American Endurance Ride Conference and competes all around Southeast in the 50 and 100 mile distances. With her years of teaching experience in the classroom and her love for horses, instructing therapeutic riding was the perfect marriage of her passions. Becky, her husband, two daughters, the herd and an army of wonderful volunteers make up Reins of Hope at the peaceful Rising Creek Farm where, through horses, they all help others live their best lives.

Therapeutic Riding and Equine Assisted Therapies for all ages

Reins of Hope offers therapeutic riding to all ages and abilities. While learning riding skills, adapted to their ability, the participants also learn to bond with these amazing creatures. The movement of the horse has so much to offer the rider as well. With its rhythmic walk, gently rolling shoulders and hips, the horse gives the rider constant sensory integration and a great workout.
