Armed Forces & Horses is our veterans program serving the brave men and women of our military, and their families. The program is designed to empower veterans during their reintegration back into their families and communities. This program is offered with 100% scholarship when funds are available. We are continuously seeking funding sources from our community in order to be able to offer this life changing program, completely free of charge to military veterans.

Equine therapy has proven to create more effective communication skills, healthier relationships, reduce stress, improve self-confidence, strengthen muscle tone, improve balance, and create fellowship and camaraderie for our veterans. 

Activities Include:

  • Horsemanship which teaches our veterans the skills needed to care for and create a relationship with their horse. They will learn skills in ground work, grooming, leading, and tacking their horse. 

  • Therapeutic Riding in which our veterans will be able to learn horseback riding skills enhancing physical, occupational and emotional growth while building a relationship with their horse and their fellow veterans. 

  • Hippotherapy program allowing our veterans to work with licensed health professionals and the horse's movements while undergoing physical, occupational, and speech therapy.

  • Counseling available with a mental health professional, equine specialist and our horses to enhance emotional wellness through relationship building with their horses to create a more satisfying life style

  • Volunteer Opportunities available and encouraged for our veterans to participate in our other classes as a side walker or horse handler helping our special needs riders and our horses.
