A letter from Kim Tschirret

Hope Reins Founder & CEO

Hope Reins’ Rescued Saddlebred, Selah, & Kim

Last year, we were privileged to spend one day in June (201 training) and another day in September (101 training) virtually 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 a unique interest in helping kids facing crisis heal through equine therapy.

We are thrilled to offer these same courses in 2021, once again in a virtual capacity.

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

Our staff shares tidbits of valuable information on different subjects ranging from your start-up business checklist to operations, programming and marketing. See below for registration.

The Business of Hope & Healing 201 dives deeper. There are two requirements before progressing to 201. First, take 101. Second, we ask that you are currently working at an equine therapy ministry. See below for more information on the course content 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!

In Hope,

Kim Tschirret
