Veteran Program- Freedom Reins

 

Healing Heroes with Horses has been going on as long as horses and man teamed up. Today we take the relationship even further by assisting military personnel and veterans through the services available through Prancing Horse Center. Equine-assisted activity and therapy programs are tailored to address specific issues faced by wounded and traumatized military personnel, while also providing a supportive and therapeutic environment for their families and loved ones.

Many veterans return from active duty with physical and/or emotional wounds. They also experience challenges in making the transition from active duty. Prancing Horse Veteran’s Program (Freedom Reins) partners with the unique attributes of the horse to empower freedom of movement, gently restore balance, strengthen muscles and rebuild trust and confidence.

Veterans helping veterans is a key component in each participant’s success. Together, they will work on relaxation, memory skills, following directions and staying focused. Together, they will help build morale and well being. Together, they will create a social network allowing friendships to form naturally.
