Heroes and Horses



 This service provides healing and learning benefits of equine assisted activities to active-duty, veterans, first-responders, and anyone affected by stress or trauma.  Activities are fun, interactive, and challenging. Lessons can be done completely on the ground if riding is not desired or not an option due to physical limitations. 



Interacting with the horse helps center people, teaches valuable communication skills, strengthens emotional bonds, and builds trust, respect, and confidence. The goal is to assist in physical and mental healing through equine activities in order to help our heroes reconnect to their families and their lives.
