Ride with us for HOPE
APRIL 2 2023


Kylie and a small team from Hope Reins will commence their journey from Gympie on April 1, stopping at Nanango, Condamine, and Mitchell before making the longest leg of their journey to the final destination of Longreach in Central Queensland.

In total the team will travel approximately 1200 km to reach Longreach by June 3, 2023.

Our aim is to connect and learn from individuals and communities along the way, bringing awareness of support services and programs available to those facing challenging times. We will have a range of organisations and businesses that will attend events at each location to help provide information and support to attendees.

We are simply mates getting together with a purpose.
We encourage individuals to come along to our events at each location.

At Hope Reins we rescue horses in need and offer them a safe and loving home.  But what we do goes much further than that … We also use our horses to work with people from all backgrounds and walks of life.  We facilitate that quiet, beautiful connection between horse and human, to help make our people (and our horses) feel whole again, as well as loved, connected, worthwhile and accepted.

People come to Hope Reins for all sorts of reasons. They may lack confidence or have a fear of horses; some are suffering stress or anxiety; others are battling with depression and/or thoughts of suicide; some are overcoming trauma; and some are dealing with self-harm.  Whatever the reason, they find the time and space to heal.

Most of our horses have stories of rescue or recovery. Whilst the size of our property means we can’t responsibly accept all horses, we do try and help or refer people who have a horse for rehoming.  Some of our horses are ready for adoption, so please enquire by sending us an email.

Hope & Resilience

Hope is one of those words we are used to seeing a lot.  Hope links our past and present to the future.  Hope is a vision of what you desire to have happen.  To have hope is to want an outcome that makes your life better in some way. We believe hope is generated through unity of struggle and purpose.

Resilience is about facing you troubles, being adapting, persistence, gathering wisdom, having courage to do things differently, hoping for better outcome, exploring options.
