HORSES helping heroes


Horses helping Heroes is a program of Stable Hands where military Veterans can build strength and confidence while developing horsemanship skills. HhH has been running three eight week sessions per year since 2009.

Horses helping Heroes is built on the foundation of Veteran peer support and utilizes the camaraderie between Servicemen and women to provide a supportive environment. Trained Veteran volunteers assist with each session. We operate from a beautiful outdoor facility located on private property. Horsemanship and riding skills are taught in mounted and dismounted sessions by PATH certified riding instructors.

We provide a supportive atmosphere and help Veterans discover an activity you can  successfully participate in.

Founded in 1996, Stable Hands is a PATH Premier Accredited Center and follows the national standards set by PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship International).   Stable Hands is a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization.
