OUR STORY

 

Mission

Statement

Our mission is to provide the highest quality equine-assisted therapy to our Nation's Veterans, Active Military, First Responders and their families. 

Established in 2014, Horses & Heroes, Inc together with BOLD Horse Solutions offers trauma-recovery with the use of Equine Assisted Therapy. We specialize in trauma that has affected the brain, body, emotions, and behaviors including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) for our Nation's Veterans, Active Military, First Responders, their spouses, and children at no cost. Horses & Heroes (also known as H&H) along with its subsidiary, BOLD Horse Solutions, offers an integrative approach to growing through trauma. Childhood trauma affects a large percentage of the population and is linked to adult-onset of chronic disease, as well as depression, suicide, violence and becoming a victim of violence. Unlike any other programs, H&H uses licensed practitioners, certified coaches, and qualified staff to offer emotional, physical, and spiritual growth to our target demographic with the use of rescued horses and mini horses. 

 I can identify with the different horse personalities and sometimes watch my life unfold through them.

Our therapy horses and mini's have either been rescued or donated to H&H. They all have their owns stories. Some have been starved, neglected, injured, and unable to work, but all have overcome great odds to be where they are today. We are very fortunate to have them be part of our team!
