'Tis the season to give. Won't you consider giving to help save the life of a Veteran or to brighten the life of an individual with special needs?

McCormick's Horses & Heroes program has been providing life-saving equine-assisted therapy to Veterans with PTSD for eight years. All services are provided free of charge to the Veterans, at a cost of $3,750 per Veteran for 12 weeks of therapy. And for the past 17 years McCormick's Heavenly Hooves program has been serving individuals with special needs through therapeutic riding.

Your gift will help us to continue our mission and meet the needs of our community. Give via our online campaign at: https://www.facebook.com/donate/983448345351840/, and thank you.


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.
