    Blackhorse 4 Heroes is more than just horse training, we teach about life after serving. 

     

    Whether physically impaired or able-bodied, all get the chance to work with the horses. Veterans who have physical disabilities can use a carriage specially adapted to accept a wheelchair. Those struggling with PTS have the opportunity to trust, communicate, re-build relationship skills and relax. Some veterans never see combat, but are still struggling with cultural change to civilian life, we have answers.

     

    But Why Horses? 

    Horses communicate through body language. This affords veterans a calm, non-judgmental platform where horse and driver work together. Problems seem to disappear when exposed to the farm.

     

    No charge to veterans, you have already paid enough with your service.
    This is a veteran designed, and supervised program. 

    Vets and volunteers

     
    Volunteers are always welcome, but training is required.
