Welcome to the website of Spirit Reins Equine Center, Inc!  We are a non-profit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization.

Our facility is located in Catahoula Parish in the town of Harrisonburg.  We are Central Louisiana's only equine facility specializing in Hippotherapy.  Spirit Reins is located on a 148 acre farm.  Patients receive therapy under a covered arena with unique sensory stations, as well as along a beautiful nature trail through a wooded area.

Spirit Reins has served individuals with disabilities from our community and surrounding areas since 2009.  


Our mission is to create a unique rehabilitative experience for individuals with disabilities using the horse as a tool to improve their confidence, self-esteem, and quality of life. We utilize the human-horse bond to improve motor, sensory, speech, and behavioral/social responses in individuals with physical, mental, emotional, or communication challenges.


At Spirit Reins Equine Center, we provide speech therapy services both within a traditional clinical setting as well as incorporating Hippotherapy as a treatment strategy.  We serve patients with disabilities including:  Autism, Cerebral Palsy, Down Syndrome, Developmental Delays, Social/Communication Delays, Language or Learning Disabilities, and Genetic Disorders.

Thank you for visiting our website!
