New Tumalo Location FAQ’S

We are thrilled to announce that Healing Reins has officially moved to our new location off Cline Falls Road. Healing Reins was gifted this property in 2022, and as of April 2024 moved all services over. 

Why Did Healing Reins Move? (expand)

Since 1999 Healing Reins leased their Equine facility and during that time grew significantly. To accommodate this growth, and to continue to serve our ever-growing community, we moved all of our services to our very own 30-acre horse property just outside of Tumalo on Cline Falls Road that Healing Reins was gifted in 2022. 

How does this impact me?

Now that Healing Reins is in a more central location, we are more accessible than ever and able to serve all of Central Oregon. All services returned to normal on May 13th. Please let us know if you are interested in joining our spring Adaptive Horsemanship session here

What services will be available? 

Our Premier Accredited Center will continue to offer a wide range of services to meet diverse needs that are tailored to empower our Central Oregon community. These services include Adaptive Horsemanship lessons, Equine-Assisted Mental Health, Hippotherapy, Equine Assisted Learning programs, Heroes Horsemanship for Veterans and First Responders, as well as specialized groups like Making Connections, a memory care focused group, and a Substance Use Disorder Treatment group. 

Will Treehouse Therapies be coming to the new location? 

Healing Reins established our own Hippotherapy, Physical and Occupational Therapy clinic onsite. Please find more information and join our interest list here. Treehouse Therapies’ Billadeau location will not be moving to Tumalo. Please see their website for more information regarding their services.  

What will become of the Billadeau location? 

Healing Reins has been leasing the Billadeau site for over 20 years and we are grateful for this time. We are very excited to have this new location in Tumalo to call our own. The beautiful Billadeau equine facility will be in good hands with the property owners. 


How far is it to the Cline Falls location in Tumalo? 

The new roundabouts on highway 20 make the commute a breeze! Here are the miles to our location from around Central Oregon. 

  • From Redmond: 13 miles 
  • From Sisters: 16 miles 
  • From Downtown Bend: 7 miles 
  • From Lapine: 36 miles 
  • From Madras: 39 miles
  • From Prineville: 33 miles 

Will the volunteers be coming to Cline Falls? 

Yes! Healing Reins could not do what we do without our amazing volunteers. This is a big change and we want to make this transition to our new site as easy on our volunteers as possible. 

If you know anyone interested in becoming a volunteer or are interested in helping with the move, please contact Bridget Albert at

Will all the same horses be moving to Cline Falls?

Yes, all of our program horses moved to the new location at the end of March to ensure they are settled in before sessions re-convened in May.

Will lesson times/days change from the current past year’s schedule?

Healing Reins will continue to provide lessons/sessions 6 days a week.  Afternoon lesson times may change some to accommodate the varying districts school hour schedule (Bend/LaPine and Redmond/Sisters school districts differ from school start/end times). All details for Summer Session will be communicated in June. 

Will I have the same instructor?

While we can’t guarantee you’ll get the instructor you want, if you love a particular instructor that you have gotten to know, please feel free to share this with our Program & Services Director Erin Rankin, or our Services Administrator Nicole Paris Johnson and we will do our best to accommodate your schedule and requests. 

Can I be enrolled in the Mental Health service on site as well as the Adaptive Horsemanship lessons?

Yes, please visit our website for more information on these services.

Can I see the new facility? 

Yes! Please contact us for more information! 

What are the amenities at the location? Will it have a wheelchair accessible lift?

We are excited to share that the site has a new indoor arena with a spacious viewing area, a Physical/Occupational Therapy room inside the indoor arena, multiple mounting areas with wheelchair accessibility, and two restrooms, as well as a spacious outdoor arena and a small animal paddock to spend time with goats, chickens and Alpacas!  


Volunteers are the heart of Healing Reins.

It is thanks to our dedicated and hard-working team of volunteers that we are able to provide our participants with the hope and healing they deserve. From preparing for and working in lessons to caring for our beautiful facility, to working behind the scenes doing administrative work, our talented volunteers make our world go round!

Get Involved

Meet our Healing
Herd of Horses

The equine members of our team are hugely important to us and are chosen very carefully. The ideal therapy horse is sound and unflappable, with a been-there-done-that attitude. Our herd members have had careers in dressage, high school equestrian teams, trail riding, ranch work, and more. Miles and experience add up to the quiet, assured horses our participants need.
