Reins of Success
The Therapeutic Riding Center of Huntington Beach and the Mounted Enforcement Unit of the Huntington Beach Police Department have united in order to develop and implement this exciting new opportunity for at-risk students in grades 5th through the 7th within the Huntington Beach Unified School District. Reins of Success builds citizenship values, instills a sense of responsibility (horse care) and provides a positive environment designed to prevent at-risk youth from engaging in or continuing risky behavior. The weekly two-hour classes run 35 weeks from September through June (school year). Students are required to achieve and maintain a B academic average and must be sponsored into the program.
