Mission: Therapeutic equestrian activities for disabled veterans
Programs: Form 990ez, prt iii, line 28: therapeutic equestrian activities for disabled veterans were provided on a weekly bsis for approximately 46 weeks during 2014. Approximately 8 - 10 disabled veterans were benefited each session. There were approximately 15 - 20 volunteers each week. The sessions are at no cost to the disabled veterans. There were 1,300 total veterans hours during the year 2014.
A place where miracles happen. I have watched not only the veterans, but their family members just totally enjoy every moment at Lonesome Dove. It is so very rewarding to be a part of this. Everyone is welcome and everyone feels at peace at this facility. I look forward to going "out to the ranch" to see the veterans having such good times and to see the wonderful volunteers. To socialize with everyone and to be near the horses in such a wonderful setting - it is therapy for this volunteer as well.
It is something one must experience to understand. There is no paid staff and we rely totally on donations.
