Mission

Foxfield F.A.R.M (For A Recovery Mission) is a not for profit organization that has been established to provide an equestrian groundwork training program for U.S Veterans with PTSD. This curriculum will be offered at absolutely no cost to any veteran participating in the program. President and Founder Susan Regan has put together a collaboration of St. Francis Hospital and Medical Center, Mt. Sinai Rehabilitation Hospital and the Frank H. Netter MD School of Medicine's Institute for Rehabilitation Medicine and Center for U.S. Veterans Rehabilitation at Quinnipiac University under Dr. Robert Krug. The program will incorporate the "re-purposing" of rescue horses and locating new, responsible owners. Funding of the programs will come primarily from public and private contributions.

Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

• Direct contact with Veterans and First Responders: they are difficult to reach/communicate our message to that target market as intermediary segment organization administrators tend to be self-serving. • There is a certain sense of resistance due to a "protective" guardianship of their served members in order to sustain/protect their fiscal relevance/reimbursement. • Grant, federal and state $'s are in short supply and any expansion of other charity sources to support the military may reduce their revenue. • We view this as short sited because we should be doing all we can to sustain the mental health of our military and community organization segments.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Equine Therapy for Veterans with PTSD

The utilization of horses to reach a calming, health restoring treatment and "out of the medical venue” and non-drug related services currently being utilized to address PTSD and mentally related challenges faced by our military service men and women. The interface between the veterans and the equines provides an equitable synergy for both segments in a relaxed and private location.

Population(s) Served
Veterans

Our primary focus in on retired polo horses. They have a stable personality and are used to multiple activities happening around them and are not bothered by their surroundings. They are forgiving of "mistakes" by people handling them.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

• Reinforce the benefits of equestrian activities being more acceptable/recognized by participants and the public as an alternative organic approach versus solely traditional clinical/opioid solutions.
• Increase grant submissions
• Identify/expand reach to the First Responder participants as demographics reveal that this segment is growing almost as fast a pace as the veterans and often they are less familiar with the equine approach to solving the inability to deal with stress and anxiety exposure on the job.
• Continually strive to identify optimum program applications/amendments to improve synergy between equine and human

• Identify and acquire professional grant writers who are willing to provide services on an in-kind basis to financial fee costs
• Educate the public via in person presentations and media communications as to the availability, objectives, benefits and feasibility of our therapy program
• Contact directly with police, medical/ambulance and fire organizations/departments to alert them to the accessibility of our farm facility
• Continue to evaluate through survey and personal discussions with program participants prior "graduation" activity.
• We are developing our contact list through prior participants' personal relationships, neighbors and community references, posters, extended PR releases/sponsorships and senior center referrals.

• We have a deep bench of medical/legal, political, U.S. Veterans and equestrian professionals on our Director and Advisory Boards who have the qualifications and contact breadth to assist with our goals.
• My husband and I have 40 years of equine experience (teaching/coaching/polo/fox-hunting, training all breeds) resulting in a broad resume and veritable list of references to confirm our capabilities.
• Susan Regan is a 40+ year corporate marketing executive with a global fortune 500 consumer product company providing a significant business acumen in all aspects of accomplishing successful outcomes. Bill Regan is a design and construction professional whose experience provides oversight for farm facilities and equine management.

• Foxfield F.A.R.M., in February 2019 through an Advisory Board Senator's proposed SB 543, presented to the CT Commission on Veterans Affairs the request for equine therapy to be covered under the U.S. Military health care insurance coverage. The submission was well received and we are awaiting determination.
• Next we investigating a legal certification trademark for our curriculum to establish a franchise template which would significantly differentiate our foundation and identify it as a progressive leader in the arena of equine therapy to address and access the challenges of PTSD through a therapy avoids the risks of opioid addiction, improves patients' confidence and self-esteem while concurrently providing a life fulfilling trade skill.
2020-received Public Hearing in CT Veterans Committee regarding inclusion of our program under Veterans Healthcare. This was the third year we presented, this time with a different proposal. We offered a prospectus with definitive cost limits as trial for the Committee to then evaluate the benefits of equine therapy with metrics developed in consult with the CT VA and engaged parties.
