A Message from Dr. Mark and Carla Meekhof:

Carla and I have a very special place in our hearts for Reins of Life. We were fortunate enough to be introduced to the program 16 years ago and quickly involved our daughter, Kelsey. Kelsey had cerebral palsy and was wheelchair bound. It is hard to express the sense of accomplishment and joy that Reins of Life provided Kelsey until her untimely passing 5 years ago. The staff was warm and welcoming from the very beginning and the special bond she had with her horses and volunteers was just incredible. Now, since Kelsey has left us, we keep Kelsey's memory alive by continuing to raise funds for the program and telling everyone we know how special a place Reins of Life is. It is an organization that is more than worthy of your support either by volunteering, donating or fundraising. Help us keep this wonderful program vibrant and growing in the Michiana community. 

Thank you.
