A letter from Kim Tschirret

Hope Reins Founder & CEO

Hope Reins’ Founder & CEO, Kim Tschirret.

I can’t believe we are now in our fourth year of offering The Business of Hope & Healing! Passionate people like you from all over the east coast have taken advantage of our virtual training (101 and/or 201), and I hope you’re here as one of them today!

The Business of Hope & Healing 101 equips you with some basic tools needed to begin building a successful organization using Hope Reins as the model. Our staff shares valuable information on different subjects ranging from a start-up business checklist to operations, programming and marketing. (See below for registration).

The 201 class takes a deeper dive, and there are two requirements before we recommend you progress to this level. First, take 101. Second, we ask that you currently work at an equine therapy ministry. (See below for more information on the course content and registration.)

Aside from serving our kids and families at Hope Reins, our greatest joy is sharing the knowledge, skills and experience we’ve accumulated over the years with people just like you.

I can’t wait to meet you – even if it’s virtually!

In Hope,

Kim Tschirret
Founder & CEO
Hope Reins
