My wife and I have been around horses most of our lives and we would go to horse and tack auctions and got really discouraged at how some people treat horses and would drug them up just to sell them at auction because they could not do anything with them. As for helping the Veterans, As a Veteran myself I wanted to be able to offer a service that has great results to help fellow Veterans with disabilities. Therapy Horses have been proven to be a great soucre to help Veterans decompress and build a bond with an amazing animal. Once we get one of our grants Our services to Veterans will be free of charge to them. We will operate on applying for grants, donations and possible adoption fees of rehabilited horses. We have a strict adoption guideline and we will offer boarding to anyone who adopts one of our horses who do not have the space to keep them. We ask for everyone's support and if possible your donation.
