During the off season this year, Rainy has been the school bus driver for an Amish school!

Mooney arrived in 2017 and came at just the right time. We needed a quiet, large based, broad backed horse and boy is he all those things. And in a handsome package to boot!
At 13 years old and 1,700 pounds, we hope to have a long relationship with Mooney and our riders. Thank you Amy Schmidt for allowing us to work with this special horse. He has a special place in your heart and our riders and staff as well.

Carin first came to us a few weeks into the 2017 season to meet a special set of needs. She fits right in and our riders are falling in love. She is a Norwegian Fjord, 19 years young with lots of experience.
Her owner and friend, Julie Cramer generously responded to our need. We can't thank her enough.

Scout is easy to spot in our program. He our only paint and his brown and white markings make him look as special as he is. He is the perfect mount for our riders who need a narrow based horse. We couldn't serve some of our needs without him.
Scout is was new in 2017 and returns this year a veteran. His owner Stephanie Steinert connected with us during the off season. She was looking for just the right job for him. We certainly think he has found it with our riders and REINS.

Kelsey Klutgen, our senior equine specialist and therapeutic riding instructor, knew she would love the job because of the way she took to young children.
