Sir Winston Churchill

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 Mission

To help returning veterans build healthy, authentic relationships at home, work and school through purposeful engagement with horses.

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 other men and women who are recovering from other physical, mental and emotional traumas to restore goodness to their bodies, minds and spirits through adaptations of our curriculum that is designed to help veterans.  

No horse experience necessary. No riding involved.
