Our New Veteran Program

We are excited to be initiating a new program to serve our veterans.  The program has a proven track record in other equine assisted programs, specifically Refuge Services in Lubbock, TX.  It involves several steps, the first being theraputic riding to reduce anxiety levels, followed by equine assisted therapy, then EMDR when needed.  In our program, we have gentle Tennessee Walking Horses for the theraputic riding, and we are using Colonial Spanish Mustangs as our equine partners in therapy.   These Mustangs have been rescued from Blackjack Mountain in Southeastern Oklahoma and have been running wild before coming here.  The survival instincts of these horses mirror the high level of arousal we see in veterans returning from combat, therefore, making them ideal for this work. 

 If you, or someone you know might be interested in our program, please contact Frank Foster at (806) 654-772.
