Our PICNIC in the PADDOCK In-Person Event

Pre-Sale General Admission Tickets to the event are now Closed. Limited quantities of tickets will be available at the start of the event on Saturday starting at 3:00pm.
Thank you for your incredible support!

Healing Reins invites you to join us for a gala experience like no-other (or maybe slightly like others) where you can participate in our annual event from the comfort of THE GREAT OUTDOORS! Just think, a socially distanced Picnic in our Paddock that includes all of your favorite traditional-Diamonds & Dust gala activities: Dancing, Live Music, Drinks, Great Food, Friends and of course an Auction and Paddle Raise!

All while you are surrounded by fresh outdoor air, beautiful scenic mountain landscapes, and roaming horses in the pasture!

*Please bring or register your credit card on the auction event site to participate in the auction, horse-pie bingo, horse painting, animal enclosure at the in-person event*

If you missed our Diamonds & Dust :: Unmasked :: The Virtual Experience last October, Watch the virtual event recording here!

Over the past 22 years, Healing Reins has not only sustained itself, but has grown significantly. To accommodate this growth and usher in another 20 years of growth, proceeds from Diamonds & Dust is crucial to maintaining, improving, and expanding our facilities and capacities.

We will use revenue from the 2022 D&D to: 

  • Expand our current year-round programs for individuals who experience disabilities and special needs

  • To expand our Equine Assisted Mental Health services

  • Make the necessary ADA accessibility improvements to our brand new location in Tumalo: 

 The pandemic has made it clear that, in order to serve our community’s desire for our services, we must increase our capacity. Healing Reins has not only sustained itself, but has grown significantly over the past 20 years. We currently serve approximately 190 participants per week. Our new second location will usher in another 20 years of growth including service to those with special needs, mental health needs and provide new outdoor recreation outlets to all of Central Oregon.

Thank you again for your past and current support of Healing Reins.
