Support military veterans’ mental and physical well-being by providing a safe and welcoming environment for equestrian therapy.
Horses have been widely used in an array of therapies. Specifically for veterans, horses can decrease symptoms of Post-Traumatic Stress Syndrome (PTSD) and anxiety that serve as barriers to academic success.
Hooves for Heroes gives our veteran students an opportunity to escape from the added pressures and challenges of transitioning from military to college life. In acquiring a new set of skills while bonding with an animal in a calming outdoor environment, each participant is encouraged to “come as you are.”
Your support will allow for expansion of the program to increase the interaction between veteran students and the horses. Help raise the level of support we are able to offer veterans in the Hooves for Heroes program.
