Spring Reins of Life serves veteran and youth trauma survivors in New Jersey. They do this with the assistance and guidance of horses. Without riding, and without “talking about it” (PTSD, combat, living on the streets, losing a parent, etc.) clients are able to find home in the heart and purpose. As a volunteer run organization,the majority of all funds raised is allocated to services not salaries.

According to iGive.com member & Spring Reins of Life supporter, “To date we have helped over 500 combat veterans, over 700 at risk teens and over 50 young children suffering loss.”

Check out their story below.
