OUR CHALLENGE:

To change the lives of 24 veterans in 2018 through our innovative, 8-week program, at no cost to them.

YOUR CHALLENGE: 

To help us get there.

The cost to put one veteran through our program is $15,000, and since our goal is to help 24 veterans next year (up from 16 in 2017) we need to raise $360,000. This doesn't include the money that it takes to take care of our horses year-round. So, altogether we are looking at a fundraising goal of $500,000. Whew, that's a lot of money, but we know we can do it. We have to. This program changes - and in many cases saves - lives, and we have to keep pushing to expand that reach. We ask you to help us get there.

WHY DOES HEROES AND HORSES EXIST?

45,000 veteran-related non-profits exist in the US.

Millions of dollars are spent on PTSD-relief initiatives every year.

Yet, 20% of veterans with PTSD become addicted to drugs or alcohol, and 22 veterans commit suicide every day.

Something isn't working.

It's time for a new approach.

OUR SOLUTION:

This innovative program utilizes expedition-style horse pack trips to teach self-reliance, teamwork and perseverance. Led by experienced instructors, many of whom are combat veterans and program graduates themselves, these veterans and their pack animals travel into the wilderness on epic, life-changing journeys of self-discovery

Our program is not a "short cut". It's not the "easy way out". It is challenging, it is intense, and, perhaps most importantly, it mandates that you look within yourself to rediscover your inner-strength, confidence, and purpose.
