Healing Our Veterans
Through the Art of Equine Therapy
To provide hands on support for wounded, ill and injured service men and women through our war horse equestrian program that provides horseback riding and ground lessons, equine care and horse management training for active and retired military who have sustained service related mental and physical injuries.
What is Equine-Assisted Therapy?
Equine-assisted therapy incorporates activities involving horses, including grooming, groundwork and horseback riding, into mental health or physical injury rehabilitation. The activities are designed to provide the opportunity for veterans to set and achieve skills-based goals, and to create relationships with the horses and with fellow veterans, allowing them to build their confidence, stability and connections. The instructors at WarHorses for Heroes carefully design their activities with mental health professionals, our horses and our clients to best help the heroes of our country heal, both emotionally and physically.
1 in 4 veterans shows signs of mental illness
