"I was so blessed to find Horses & Heroes during a time when I was feeling lost in the shuffle at the VA. As a disabled veteran, I receive all of my care through the VA, and was concerned about the costs involved in seeking help elsewhere. A friend recommended Horses & Heroes and I am SO GLAD he did! Not only did I receive top-notch therapy (at no cost to me), but I was also able to make some horse friends! Being in the field with the horses during the sessions is an incredible experience. Petting the horses helped me stay grounded when I was sharing difficult things, and through observations of their behaviors, I was able to see parallels in my own path to recovery. I have beautiful snapshots in my mind of that field and those horses that I can re-visit whenever I am struggling. I will continue to HIGHLY recommend H&H to my peers. Thank you!"
