NONPROFIT SPOTLIGHT                                               
       Hope Unbridled

To understand and appreciate what Hope Unbridled is all about, just read these two sentences from their facebook page:

"The mission of Hope Unbridled Equestrian Program is to bring hope to individuals of all abilities and circumstances through equine related activities and therapy. At Hope Unbridled Equestrian Program it is our goal to affirm the worth of each individual as they are uniquely and wonderfully created."




Hope Unbridled does not simply teach children how to ride horses. They provide opportunities for differently-abled individuals to experience a type of freedom that comes from being on the back of a patient, kind-spirited horse, accompanied by a trained professional and volunteers who thrive on seeing their clients enjoying, smiling, and blossoming.


Hope Unbridled currently runs 3 programs:

Ride On - adaptive therapeutic riding lessons for physically-, mentally-, or behaviorally-challenged children, youth, and adults. A PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International) instructor leads the way while volunteers assist.

Stride Out - leadership development for individuals from all walks of life who are seeking riding and horsemanship skills. This program focuses on preparing the client to be a leader and an effective team member.

HoofBeats of Hope - equine-assisted psychotherapy. With the help of a licensed mental health professional, clients who have suffered traumatic events or conditions, such as abuse, neglect, depression, anxiety, and addiction, learn to communicate effectively (setting boundaries, making requests, building trust) with horses first then they are able to transfer those skills to humans.




As if the nonprofit itself is not fascinating enough, the story of its origins will move you and inspire you. To find out what led Sherry Jenkins to create Hope Unbridled and to learn more about the programs and volunteer opportunities, visit their website or their facebook page.
