THREE BRIDGES, N.J. — Thanks to Aravind Krishnan, a member of Boy Scout Troop 489 the horses of Spring Reins of Life have a new place to seek shelter from the weather.

For his Eagle Scout project he raised funds and built a new shelter for the horses so they could have access to more pasture space. The project is now complete and a dedication ceremony will be held on Sept 1 at 10:30 a.m. at the farm.

Spring Reins of Life is a non-profit , EAGALA (Equine Assisted Growth and Learning Association) model program offering Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) and Equine Assisted Learning (EAL) which incorporates the use of horses for therapeutic intervention toward promoting emotional growth and healing.

There is no riding is involved. Instead the clients interact with the horses which are free to reciprocate — or simply walk away. During a demonstration at a the annual open house, the horses reacted differently to different people.

The program operates out of Hunt Cap Farm, 401 Main Street, Three Bridges.
