Through fundraising efforts and donations, Horse Spirit provides horse-related activities for Veterans and family members at no cost to them. These activities help Veterans transition from military to civilian life and/or learn coping skills and/or reduce any problems that may have occurred while in the military. Veterans who take part in the program are from all eras. Many participants were in the service during peacetime, but also suffered traumatic experiences while in the service. The focus is to have the horses help Veterans learn new ways to manage their energy levels, calm themselves down, focus, get grounded, and learn to trust again.
If you are a Veteran and/or family member, we encourage you to contact us at our contact link above. We also welcome referrals from other sources including VA providers, Vet Center Counselors, County Veteran Service Officers, non VA providers, and anyone interested in helping Veterans and their families!
