Our programs

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

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

Equine Wellness and Permanance

Horses that are no longer needed or wanted by their owners are given a home by the organization to protect them from suffering or maltreatment. They are provided with a safe, permanent home and care that reflects species-appropriate feed, boarding, and handling. These horses may partner with participants in other programs as they build trust and skills.

Population(s) Served

Veterans and their family members participate in horsemanship education that includes learning about horse nature and behavior, horse and facility care, and the development of handling skills. The focus of this program is to build strong partnerships that promote wellness and healing for both the horses and the participants. The process of building these relationships offers opportunities to grow in self awareness, self regulation, empathy, communication skills, and more. The hope is that the personal growth that happens as a result of participation will carry over into improved interpersonal relationships and community engagement.
