A letter from Kim Tschirret

Hope Reins Founder & CEO

Hope Reins’ Rescued Saddlebred, Selah, & Kim

Last year, we were privileged to spend two days in June with people just like you representing 17 different organizations from all over the East coast.

You came from different cities, backgrounds and levels of experience. But everyone had passion and purpose. They had an unique interest in helping kids facing crisis heal through equine therapy.

The Business of Hope & Healing 101 equipped you with some basic tools needed to begin building a successful organization, using Hope Reins as a model.

Our staff loved sharing tidbits of valuable information on different subjects ranging from your start-up business checklist to operations, programming and marketing.

This year, we are thrilled to offer The Business of Hope & Healing 101. Please see the details below for dates and registration.

Aside from serving our Hope Reins community, our greatest desire is to share the knowledge, skills and experience we have gathered over the years with people just like you.

I can’t wait to meet you! Even if it is virtually!
