Therapeutic Riding Program
for injured Police Officers

 Kids Rein is proud to expand its therapeutic horseback riding services to police officers who have been injured in the line of duty.   Currently, Kids Rein is riding Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Officers.  

The way it works, says Teressa Tucker, Founder of Kids Rein, is that we want to give back to officers who risk their lives for us every day. The only way we feel we can give back is by offering equine  assisted therapy to these injured heroes.

Kids Rein is looking for officers to volunteer their time to assist the injured officers during equine therapy sessions.  Officers are there to help each other out, which really helps the injured officer in many different ways.  (A medical release is required for each rider before riding.)

Please consider donating to this program.  All donations are tax deductible. 

A Rider Registration Packet must be filled out for all riders.  A Volunteer Packet is required for all volunteers.  These forms are located on the “Forms” page of the Kids Rein website.



Please consider volunteering.
You can make a difference in the life of a child with a disability!
