Landon LindseyWinston Churchill once said, “There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a (person).”

This is certainly true at Free Rein Center, where horses and humans are partners in learning. Free Rein instructors, volunteers, and horses help children and adults with a wide range of disabilities and challenges like Autism, Cerebral Palsy, ADHD, and many others. Participants gain increased flexibility, balance and coordination, enhanced gross and fine motor skills, improved posture, and self confidence.

Free Rein also offers courses for adults and children on such themes as spirituality, grief, and confidence-building.  Free Rein is a member center of Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International (PATH International), which also certifies our compassionate and experienced instructors. We capitalize on the human-horse connection as the therapeutic agent in working with individuals and diverse groups of all ages.

Free Rein is the only PATH center in Transylvania, Henderson, or Buncombe Counties and we serve people from all three of those counties. Free Rein lesson fees are kept low to assure participation by all who might benefit, and scholarship assistance is available to all who qualify.

Free Rein is a qualified 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization. For more information on Free Rein news, and events, or to find out about lessons or volunteering, click on the tabs above, or to get in touch with us, visit our Contact page.
