Taking the Reins
Peter Tolkin Architecture is working closely with Taking the Reins to develop a new riding facility for them adjacent to the LA river. The vision is to create a sustainable ranch, with a working farm, horse stables, classrooms and riding ring.
Taking the Reins is a non-profit organization that seek to inspire underserved girls facing the challenges of adolescence in high risk environments. Teens develop self-esteem, teamwork, responsibility and leadership skills principally through learning to ride and care for horses. Taking the Reins seeks to create positive changes in teenage girls so they can engage in positive behaviors, take control of their lives and ultimately step into leadership roles in our society.
