3 R's Equine Therapy Center has been the dream of our Executive Director, Rebecca Rust-Krell, for more than 40 years. More importantly, she wanted to run the business with her daughter, Sarah Otten. When Sarah was in high school, she had friends who could not afford a horse, and so Rebecca offered to let them take lessons with their horses. She would hire them to work at her Mail Boxes Etc. Stores, now known as The UPS Stores, after school and on weekends. This way they could participate in equine schooling shows and events. Rebecca's love for horses and helping those in need was the only spark she needed to begin this journey.
In November 2018, Rebecca and Sarah were approached by a trauma attachment therapist about being equine therapy professionals. Already running an equine boarding facility together, the two quickly realized that with their combined management experience, and with further training, they could become certified trauma informed equine professionals. After weeks of research and due diligence, the two began the process of becoming Natural Lifemanship Certified Equine Professionals (NLC-EP).
With the help of family, friends, and a dedicated board of directors, 3 R's Equine Therapy Center was formed, and is on its way to becoming a leader in the industry.
It is our promise as we continue to grow and learn, to give our best effort in leaving no one behind. Whether it be emotional, physical, or mental health, we will be here to support you.
