Hope Reins Outreach
Hope Reins of South Dakota is a nonprofit outreach program. Our mission is to provide structured equine activities for disadvantaged youth and families. We utilize horses and volunteers to accomplish this in various one-on-one settings. By displaying love through mentoring relationships, we believe people will acquire healing from the past and hope for the future. While providing the opportunity to participate in safe, nurturing horsemanship experiences, Hope Reins serves as a place of refuge and offers people a sense of belonging.

Hope Reins began many years ago as a dream in a young girl’s heart. “I have always had the idea in the back of my mind, that I want to help people. Now, many years later, I am able to see how my past experiences are able to help me reach others and turn my dream into reality,” says Angela Mendel. She envisioned combining her people skills with her extensive knowledge of horses to reach those in need. Hope Reins is the name that has been given to the reality of Angela’s dream.
