As a long time member of this team I can see the difference we make in the lives of the people we meet. It has been rewarding to help so many. Please take a look at our team page 4freedtomteam.com or find us on Facebook. Signing up as a volunteer has touched my life and I know it would touch yours if you chose to join our great team!
I have enjoyed being a part of the 4 Freedom Equestrian Team since 2011, and could not imagine a better group of people! Some of the goals of this team is to raise awareness of veterans and their needs, serving the public through education of horses and their roll in the government, our newest addition of equine therapy for veterans suffering from PTSD, and providing horse drawn carriage rides at the Dayton VA center for the veterans as well as to the public, just to name a few. This group of people volunteer all of their time and truly enjoy giving back to the men and women who have served! If you have the chance, come see all of the hard work put into this organization, or you can make a donations to help us honor our uniformed service members! Thank you for the opportunity to share with you just a small portion of my experiences with such a wonderful team! -We honor those who have come before, those serving now, and those that will serve. God bless America!
The 4 Freedom Equestrian team is dedicated to the help and healing of our nations veterans and servicemen/women of the United States. Your support makes it possible!
I have been honored to be a part of this great organization for many years now. Giving back to those who have sacrificed so much, yet receive so little in return is a mission we all believe very strongly in. By raising awareness in this country of just how little some of our veterans have and how much they need hopefully will make a difference.
The 4 Freedom Equestrian Team provides magnificent beauty and healing to the Veterans on the Dayton VA Campus. The team is always appreciated as they are present during the many American Veterans Heritage Center activities. The Team continues the War Horse Military Legacy! Keep up the Great Work!
The 4 Freedom Riders is best described by saying their actions speak louder than words in helping deliver the healing message of THANK YOU for your service. Their can-do-attitude in meeting any perceived task or challenge for veteran community outreach of caring needs knows no limits. As a female veteran and nurse practitioner one takes pride in knowing that the presence of an honored color guard, their story of veteran service done on horseback or bringing their mounts onto the Dayton VAMC so our veterans have an uplifting hands on pet therapy program does wonder in helping to heal our wounded warriors and care givers' spirits and souls. Especially noteworthy has been the outreach our female veterans of earlier war times who are realizing in some way they have respected veteran status too. We salute all 4 Freedom Riders mission/vision of caring and wish them the best in their future endeavors. M. Kruckemeyer, president emeritus, American Veterans Heritage Center.
Leah Edwards and the 4 Freedom Equestrian Team are true professionals in every sense. Their work and support of our veterans is truly appreciated. They deserve your support!
amazing team that does amazing things. i love doing what we do and am honored to be a part of it. its and organization that is truly dedicated to supporting our veterans. very professional in everything we do from honor guards and parades to our performances. which if you haven seen the performance i highly recommend it, it is a very moving piece of work and has brought tears to people's eyes. the share and care program is very rewarding for me to be a part of. the veterans get to spend time with the horses by petting and grooming them and we get to know them and they get to know us as well. its awesome knowing that we make their day brighter.
An organization truley dedicated to supporting our Veterans! Professionally done, horsemanship and uniform content. A must for any Veterans function!!
The times I have volunteered with this group I have seen the dedication and willingness to help our military personnel the team displays. It is good to know there is a team out there doing what they can to help our military personnel. Thanks...
As a member of several lineage organizations involved in ceremonies and parades, I have had the pleasure of seeing the commitment of the Equestrian Team. Their recognition of our patriots is a positive influence in our community. At a time when many do not get involved or stand on the side lines, The 4 Freedom Equestrian Team is front and center....and we appreciate them!
As a Gold Star Wife, I have followed the 4 Freedom Equestrian Team's visits to the Dayton VA and to various parades and fairgrounds in the Western Ohio area. I have seen and talked to the veterans who are so moved by the dedication of the 4 Freedom Team that it brings them out to talk to others. The 4 Freedom team has performed memorial services with the Blue Star Mothers of the Miami Valley and also supported the Patriot Freedom Festival for many years. They are instrumental in helping veterans with their emotional issues with their recreational therapy. The veterans talk to the team members and also are able to get close to the horses, brushing, petting, and relating. It is so meaningful to me personally to see the smiles on our veterans faces.
