MILL SPRING—Guiding Reins, a non-profit organization that provides equine-assisted support to veterans, first responders and their families, will host a  benefit golf Tournament on Monday, April 22  at Bright’s Creek Golf Club in Mill Spring.

The fundraiser aims to support the wellness programs offered by Guiding Reins at no cost to the participants. These programs help individuals deal with the high-stress, high-risk environments and frequent exposure to traumatic events that veterans and first responders face regularly, which can have long-term psychological impacts on their well-being and their families. 

Guiding Reins was founded in 2018 to provide equine-assisted peer-to-peer support, small group and one-on-one opportunities to work with horses to help individuals learn how to heal, along with online resources.
