Our group therapy is limited to veterans only, but you can help with the class room, learn about horses, and help interact with the equine portion of the class. Training is required for equine interaction.
  • If you are a veteran, and would like to volunteer your time, please register here. As a veteran, you will be invited to sit in the veteran only group therapy where we privately discuss issues facing veterans today.

By Appointment only, students and volunteers must register to attend. 

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.
