Veteran Horse Therapy

Operation WE CARE is a free Equine Assisted Therapy (EAP) program for vets.

Understanding the strategies for combat survival, as well as what symptoms might be exhibited in post war veterans upon re-introduction to civilian life, is what makes our EAP program so effective. We've seen great results with veterans struggling with PTSD, depression, addictions, guilt, grief, anger, panic attacks, sleep disorders, and spiritual injuries.

Our veteran horse therapy program is:

free to qualified military individuals and their families.

effective at helping to manage and heal the effects of military service through re-building self-esteem and emotional balance, re-connecting a spiritual foundation and core relationships, and focusing on the future.

proven to create positive change through a process of restoration, reconnection, and re-defining oneself.

Why Horse Therapy Is So Successful

Our horse therapy program enables you to learn about yourself and others by participating in activities with the horses and then discussing feelings, behaviors, and patterns.

Horses offer several advantages. Obviously, their size offers a perfect opportunity to overcome fear and develop confidence and trust. Just like us, horses experience a variety of emotions and are intuitive and social animals with distinct personalities, attitudes, and moods. They have defined roles within their herds comparable to human dynamics. Most importantly, horses mirror exactly what human body language is telling them. If you're impatient, the horse becomes impatient. It is this connection that provides us with metaphors and lessons about ourselves and leads us to change. Horses can teach us self-awareness, healthy boundaries, honest communication, leadership, patience, assertiveness, affection, and more.

Anyone can participate in our horse therapy program; no prior horse or riding experience is required. It is safe and most activities are unmounted.

Costs & Schedule

Veteran horse therapy is free to qualified military individuals and their families. Appointments can be made Monday through Friday from 8 AM until 5 PM with extended hours available upon request. Please call to schedule your appointment prior to your arrival.

Testimonials

"I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you and all of your staff. This is the first Christmas in over a decade that the thought of killing myself isn't controlling my day. I'm excited to be with my family, play games, and of course watch all the kiddos open their presents. I have always just went upstairs and wanted to be alone during our family get together. This year however, Reece and I were the first ones here and I was the one initiating the texts to speed everybody else up.

I'm back to being the man I once was. I'm afraid to imagine where I might be if I wasn't introduced to you and your staff. Along with Sylvia you have changed my life. No longer the person afraid to be in public with people around me! I hope you all have a very Merry Christmas! You have give my family the gift of their son, brother, and uncle back. Most of all Reece has his daddy! Trinity is a true life saver!

Merry Christmas God Bless You"
