January 2018 Updates
Ready for another year of awesome?
We’re determined to start 2018 off strong.
A word from the Co-Founders:
Unbridled Rehab is entering its fourth year! We are excited about all the growth we have made since our founding in January 2015. This past year we expanded our reach to Baltimore County, Prince George’s County, and Frederick County. We have added 5 new staff members and supported over 15 students eager to pursue a career in various allied health fields. Unbridled Rehab is looking towards the future and eager to continue to grow and develop programs to support you and your family. We have partnered with a local company, Sprout to Sprinkle, to introduce social groups in a familiar setting, our main location, TRRC! In addition, we will be offering more Strider Bike Programming once Spring returns to western Howard County and we will be offering more Handwriting Improvement Programming. We are always interested in hearing from you as far as current therapy-related needs in our greater community.
We want to thank you for your continued support and participation in your weekly therapies. We are so excited for all the progress made with each of our clients and the wonderful opportunities to work directly with you and your extended family. You truly feed our passion to continue to stride onward blending the benefits of hippotherapy with clinical therapy strategies. We love what we do and look forward to seeing you at the barns and in our community in 2018!
All our best,
Alysa and Katie
Saturday schedule changes.
Unfortunately, we have to make some changes for Saturdays at TRRC due to not having large horses appropriate for therapy sessions consistently available. Starting in January, our weight limit for mounted therapy sessions on Saturdays will be 85 lbs and we will be condensing our schedule to 9am–1pm.
In summary, here is whats changing for Saturday therapy:
- Lower weight limit (85 lbs)
- Condensed schedule 9am – 1pm
- Expanded services — Social group opportunities
Social Groups for the New Year!
Join us for a fun and exciting 6 week program for children ages 5-9 to practice social skills and promote independence and know-how through healthy eating and food prep activities in a small group setting. We will learn about kindness, thoughtful listening, and respecting others. We even learn about diversity through our food and apply it to our friendships.
All sessions are led by occupational therapist, Megan Beyerle, who is skilled in adapting the tasks for both physically and cognitively impacted students.
We are seeking those interested in Saturdays from 1:30pm – 2:30pm, starting in February.
The cost would be $200 for 6 weeks, and we do offer a 20% discount for siblings. If your insurance covers these services, we will provide you with the necessary billing documentation so that you can submit the invoice for reimbursement through your insurance, we will not directly bill. Payment plans are also available as needed.
Groups will incorporate stories, crafts/games, fun, and cooperative food activities, and some outdoor play (weather permitting) to foster positive social behavior within the group. All group sessions would be located at TRRC main office in the therapy room.
The first week is a drop in week for those interested, but not able to commit to whole 6 wks. $40 deposit required with registration. Click here to register!
If this would interest you and your child, please contact Megan Beyerle (firstname.lastname@example.org or 443-837-5607).
Winter is Here!
Just a reminder that URS follows county school inclement weather closings for each location! Additionally, when there are extreme low temps, horse sessions may be changed to indoor clinic sessions. Please contact your therapist directly with any questions!
The Cedar Lane School and the Howard County Autism Society are hosting a camp fair for students with disabilities.

Unbridled is growing again!
As we round out our third full year in business, URS has accepted our first Level II occupational therapy student! We are pleased to welcome Erin Wright. She comes to us from Carrabus College, in North Carolina. Erin will be meeting our clients and working closely with most of the OTs at URS to further her skills to become a certified and licensed occupational therapist.
December 20, 2017 both Amanda Lee (student intern June-August 2017) and Jennifer Reilly (September-December 2017) graduated from Towson University with their B. S. in Exercise Science. They are both pursuing graduate studies in the field of occupational therapy. We wish you the best of luck in your studies!
