Since 1999 Healing Reins has leased our current Equine facility and during that time has grown significantly. To accommodate this growth, and to continue to serve our ever-growing community, we are moving 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?
Healing Reins will be in a new location at 65325 Cline Falls Rd. beginning April 1st. Our services will take a brief and temporary pause during the month of April to move our facility and get our horses settled in. We will be ready to offer our full services at this new location by May 13th. Please let us know if you are interested in joining our spring Adaptive Horsemanship session here.
When will services be available?

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. Many of our volunteers have already been helping at the new site for months with events, groups, and helping take care of our horses and are excited for us all to be together in one location soon.
If you know anyone interested in becoming a volunteer or are interested in helping with the move, please contact Bridget Albert at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will all the same horses be moving to Cline Falls?
Yes, all of our program horses will be moving to the new location at the end of March to ensure they are settled in before the Spring session begins mid-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 at our new location starting in May. 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 Spring Session will be communicated in April.
Will I have the same instructor?
Once you let us know that you’re interested in the spring session and the days/times that work best for you, we’ll begin to work on the schedule. 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.
