"Horses respond with all of their being. All they know is honesty."
Buck Brannaman

Our Mission

To provide veterans and others in transition with the tools they need to build healthy relationships at home and in their communities through purposeful engagement with horses.

Our Vision

A country where veterans have the opportunity to enjoy the physical, mental and emotional freedom they were willing to give their lives to protect.

Our Values

We never charge veterans for our services.

Our sincere desire is to give those who want to return to their communities and live satisfying and productive lives ‘a leg up’ through our five-week curriculum.  

We rely completely on the generosity of people who want to see these brave men and women go from surviving to thriving.  

We also do our part to ensure the sustainability of our flagship program by providing individuals who are recovering from other physical, mental and emotional conditions and diseases with tools that restore goodness to their bodies, minds and spirits through adaptations of our curriculum.

Please reach out to us about fees and schedules for these programs.

No horse experience necessary. No riding involved.
