Horses and Heroes Program

Call all Military Veterans: Come ride with us and experience the healing power of horses!

Equine  Assisted Therapy (EAT) has proven beneficial for Veterans and family  members who have experienced trauma, such as Post Traumatic Stress  Syndrome (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and other physical,  mental, and emotional challenges.  

Just being  around a therapy horse, whether one chooses, to ride, groom, or spend  time walking on the trail can bring a sense of peace and well-being.  The  rhythm of the horse while riding, hearing the beat of their hooves as  they touch the ground, or just standing listening to them breathe is an  experience like no other.

Physical,  cognitive, and emotional benefits also come with horseback riding.  Oxytocin is produced in the human body which is why people feel better  after riding.  Many riders in our program  report feeling physically stronger and more flexible.  They also  experience increased self-esteem, decreased anxiety, improvements in  problem solving, attention, memory, and more!
