Horses & Heroes


Serving Veterans with PTSD

Horses help Veterans reconnect in a foreign world and rediscover a sense of purpose. A certified therapeutic riding instructor facilitates group sessions that include both mounted activities and ground work group and individual counseling sessions are available to Veterans diagnosed with PTSD. A licensed mental health professional utilizes horses as a therapeutic tool to support the client's goals. Program activities are designed to improve mental health and foster successful relationships in a civilian society.
