Rainbow Reins Equine Activities in New Jersey provides therapeutic horseback riding for children with autism and other developmental disabilities. Amelia Opderbeck is one young lady, whose favorite horse is Toby, who has become more social and conversational. Her father, Ted Opderbeck, says, “She's really blossomed. . . . To have something she feels so comfortable with, it really helps. And it has transferred into other parts of her life.”

Marlene Meyer, a former nurse, is the founder of Rainbow Reins and uses horses to help kids with disabilities learn to interact, gain muscle strength, sensory integration skills, and emotional growth. She provides individual lessons as well as group camps.
