The nonprofit Reining Strength Therapeutic Horsemanship, which provides customized therapies for people with physical, cognitive, emotional, or social needs — including those with cerebral palsy and PTSD — is the latest recipient of Cole Insurance Group’s community enrichment fundraising program, which supports families in the Houston metropolitan area.
“The compassion, help, and hope Reining Strength offers to local people is truly priceless,” Cole Insurance Group owner Tim Cole said in a press release. “We’re thrilled to be helping them provide these vital services to those in need in our community.”
Reining Strength Therapeutic Horsemanship is a provider of therapeutic horsemanship programs for children and adults, so they can realize their full potential through a variety of physical, psychosocial, and social benefits. Besides patients with cerebral palsy and post-traumatic stress disorder, those suffering from anxiety disorders and learning and intellectual disabilities may find help through Reining Strength’s programs — a way to improve strength, coordination, muscle tone, independence, self-control, sequential thinking, and social relationships.
All lessons are taught by certified PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship) instructors, with therapeutic benefits from learning to ride, as well as through building a relationship with the horses. Benefits achieved through the grooming of the horses, for instance, improve range of motion and have a relaxing and calming effect.
Cole Insurance Group has recently kicked off its master charity program, where they commit to the selection of a new local organization, family, or individual every two months. The agency has made a pledge to donate $10 for every recommendation they receive for an insurance quote, with no purchase needed.
The Cole team is working to promote the Reining Strength campaign through several channels, including in the monthly company magazine, called Our Hometown, which is delivered to thousands of Houston houses and families, as well as their communities.
