Equal Love

WarHorses for Heroes is a local non-profit organization that provides equine-assisted therapy to veterans who have sustained service-related mental or physical injuries.  Some of the available services are grooming, groundwork, horseback riding, and even advanced horsemanship classes.

About Us

Why we do this

“1 in 4 veterans shows signs of mental illness and 1 in 10 veterans is physically disabled.”

WarHorses for Heroes creates a safe haven and cohesive environment in which veterans can feel at home and welcome.  One of the main struggles we hear about is veterans not feeling like they belong or that they “lost” their family after separating from the military.  WarHorses for Heroes strives to introduce them into a new and supportive family that they can utilize to rebuild their lives in the civilian world.

Our Mission

For those who served

The brave men and women who have fought for our freedom need our help! Find out how equine-assisted therapy through WarHorses for Heroes can benefit veterans and how YOU can help! We believe no hero should be forgotten or left behind.  Therefore, all veteran therapy sessions are given free of charge.  Thanks to the support of our sponsors and volunteers, a veteran never has to worry about financial burden while receiving our help.  To become a Friend of WarHorses, or to donate anonymously, please contact us or visit our donation page.
