At Healing Reins, we believe that no one should be denied an opportunity to participate in our horsemanship programs because of financial need. We strive to make all of our horsemanship programs available to as many members of our community as possible, regardless of the ability to pay.

Since we have a limited amount of scholarship funding, we recommend applying for scholarship assistance as far in advance of the session you are interested in attending as possible, and before the monthly scholarship cycle deadline. Our programs are open to all and we do not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, physical challenges, or sexual orientation.

Assistance will be awarded to those with proven financial need, dependent upon availability of funds. In order to meet the needs of as many families as possible, 100% financial aid is rarely given. Typical financial assistance is given at 25%-50% of the published program fees for a session. Assistance level is determined using several factors that affect household finances and ability to pay.

If you would like to apply for scholarship assistance for yourself, your family, or other members of your household:

  • Please make sure you (or they) have registered as Healing Reins participants first
  • Once you and/or your household members are registered as Healing Reins Participants, please use the form on this page to apply for scholarship assistance.
  • In order to apply for scholarship assistance, you will need to provide household financial information including income, assets, rent/mortgage information, nutritional supplemental programs, and non-reimbursed medical costs. You only need to fill out one form per household, if multiple family members participate here at Healing Reins.
  • Your individual application information will be kept confidential.
  • If you have any questions or need any assistance, please contact us by phone or by using our contact form

Scholarship Application Cycle:

In order to serve as many participants as possible with limited scholarship funding, we accept scholarship applications at any time and we evaluate scholarship applications in groups, once per month. Each month, we review all scholarships that were received by 11:59PM on the 21st so that we can evaluate the applications and send award notifications in time for invoicing for the next month. This schedule is subject to change, and varies during holiday periods. Please check this page often!

Upcoming Scholarship Application and Award Cycle:

  • Friday, December 16, 2022 by 11:59PM Pacific
    • All Scholarship Applications Submitted from October 22 -  Friday, December 16, 2022 at 11:59PM will be reviewed and determination emails will be sent to the applicants before December 21. Any scholarships awarded would start with the January 2023 monthly tuition.
