The Session Program
Programs are free of charge operating entirely on volunteers and donations: no experience with horses is necessary and the only requirement is that participants want to come! While we do not wish to turn any child away, there are a limited number of sessions available each month. Although we cannot guarantee a session for every child who wants one, Freedom Reigns does its best to accommodate as many participants as possible while maintaining the intentionality and quality we currently have with each individual participant.
Please note: we are not a professional counseling agency and operate as volunteer mentors who believe true hope and real healing is found in the person of Jesus Christ. We believe that counseling/therapy is an important aspect of healing from trauma and encourage survivors of trauma to pursue professional counseling. We are happy to provide references.
To ensure we are able to serve as many participants as possible and in the best way possible, an application process is utilized for all individuals requesting sessions. A physical signed waiver is required for every participant and person visiting Freedom Reigns Ranch. Once this application has been received, our administrative assistant will email the waiver to be completed and mailed back within two weeks. If a waiver is not received, the participant application will be removed from our database. By filling out this application, you agree to our session time and attendance policy:
Freedom Reigns Ranch operates entirely on volunteers who selflessly give their time to serve you/your family. If you are more than 10 minutes late for your scheduled session for any reason, that time will be repurposed.
Sessions will not be rescheduled. If you are late or miss two or more sessions in a season the spot will be forfeited for the remainder of the current session season (February/March/April/First Part of May, Second Part of May/June/July, September/October/November, First Part of December) and you will be placed on the wait list. Please be on time for sessions and communicate when grace needs to be given.
A PHONE CALL (not a text or email) IS REQUIRED FOR ANY CANCELLATION OR TARDINESS.
NOTE: We attempt to make every provision to ensure information submitted on our website is confidential. As with all electronic communication, there is a risk for breach/"hack"/"leak"/etc. that may result in a breach of confidentiality. If you'd prefer to mail your application in or deliver it by hand, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
