Advancing Girl-Power Through Horse-Power
Who we are
Who we are

We are Taking The Reins. We encourage at-risk girls to act Boldly with Courage and Confidence, through experiences with horses at our urban farm.

What we do?
Our Vision
There’s a place where we want to guide these young girls to go — a place of inner-fortitude, confidence, and limitless potential. Experience tells us that they often can find their way to that place, over time, on the back of a horse and in nature.

One time gift

Supporting Taking the Reins with a one time gift is greatly appreciated. You can help TTR finish the new barn or support a child, horse or barn animal. Many donors choose to sponsor a girl or animal for one session, which is $500.00 every six weeks.

Donate today!

Monthly giving

We love monthly giving to support an animal or girl. You can choose the amount that is comfortable for you and know you are supporting something you love. Whatever you choose, you can rest assured your gift will have a positive affect on the life of a young woman.

Thank you for donating!

Corporate Giving; Foundations & Trusts

Many corporations will offer to match monetary gifts you make to non-profits. Ask your company today! Also, if you have or are affiliated with a foundation or trust, larger gifts make a long term difference in the lives of under served girls in the Los Angeles Basin.
