McCormick's vision is to reduce Veteran suicidal rates and strengthen families who include an individual with special needs by expanding access to effective equine-assisted therapies worldwide.

Heavenly Hooves

Doctors said some would never walk, and now they do. Riders who could not speak, chatter away. Some who had not a single friend, now have many.

Horses & Heroes

Horses help Veterans reconnect in a foreign world and rediscover a sense of purpose.


Initiatives are conducted across both the Heavenly Hooves program (researching  autism) and the Horses & Heroes (PTSD) program.

Summer Horse Camp

Most of the year we serve special needs individuals and Veterans. But in the month of June, we open up summer horse camp for our community of non-special-needs individuals, giving those kids (ages 8-14) a chance to come learn to ride, participate in activities, and have fun at the barn.
Registration for Summer Horse Camp is now open. Go to Resources, then Forms, then Summer Horse Camp Registration for details and signup.
