Our therapy horses are the backbone of our program. Many have had past careers in the show ring, on the polo field and as trail mounts. Each has their own unique personality and needs, and each is invaluable to our program.
We are proud to recognize our Equine Care Partners for their generous in-kind support!

Loan or Donate Your Horse To Southern Reins
Do you have a horse or pony that you think would make a great therapy horse? Below please find more information on the process to loan or donate your equine to our program:
Step 1: Owner contacts Southern Reins and is emailed the Equine Information Form (EIF) to be completed, including the list of required criteria.
Step 2: Upon receiving the EIF, Southern Reins' Program Director will contact the owner to set up an onsite evaluation if horse passes initial screening based on information provided.
Step 3: Southern Reins' Program Director, with assistance as needed, conducts a comprehensive onsite evaluation of the equine.
Step 4: If the equine passes the initial screening of the onsite evaluation, the owner will transport or provide transportation of the equine to Southern Reins' Collierville Campus located at 916 Billy Bryant Road, Collierville TN 38017 to begin the 60 day trial period.
Step 5: The Program Director will complete an Equine Evaluation Assessment form based on the initial onsite evaluation and throughout the 60 day trial period to determine if the equine is a suitable fit for our program.
Note: All equines entering the program on trial must have either a signed Equine Loan Agreement or Equine Donation Agreement, as these documents contain our liability release statement. Equines must have a negative Coggins valid for at least 6 months from their trial start date, vaccinations valid for 6 months from their trial date, and must have farrier services completed no more than 3 weeks prior to their trial start date.
We appreciate your consideration to lend us your fabulous four-legged friend!
