Taking the Reins

"Nestled along the L.A. River and just minutes from downtown Los Angeles, Taking the Reins is a non-profit dedicated to helping girls learn how to navigate their personal growth and futures by engaging with and learning about horses in our Equestrian Facility and in our quarter-acre Garden and Animal Husbandry program.

From picking hooves and scrubbing buckets to competing in nationwide horse shows and learning how to grow, harvest and cook food they’ve cultivated themselves, students at Taking the Reins learn the four pillars of Confidence, Leadership, Responsibility and Teamwork.

Serving children throughout Los Angeles, Taking the Reins runs on a sliding scale, thus ensuring that girls throughout Los Angeles have access to the restorative power of nature and the magic of partnering with a horse. Regardless of their economic status.  

We are so thankful that Ethos Equestrians has chosen to support our work at Taking the Reins! Please feel free to visit our website at www.takingthereins.org for more information."
