Partnering directly with medical teams at Joint Base Lewis McChord, the Veterans Administration and private referrals we help our heroes struggling to cope with PTSD, Traumatic Brain Injuries, combat injuries, mental health challenges and other visible and invisible wounds of war.

Our riders often come to us struggling with thoughts of suicide, have pulled away from family and friends and are struggling to cope with their changed reality.

Our horses, and highly trained teams of staff and volunteers help these riders learn life-skills and healing through horsemanship. These simple, yet profound lessons help guide broken souls back to a passion for life, trust and the relationships that will sustain them throughout the future. s lives! What starts as a soldier learning to ride a horse becomes a life changing experience.
