“The equestrian retreat was a great program. It helped me to connect with fellow veterans and enjoy nature which helps relieve stress. Thank you for providing the retreat and providing support to veterans.”

Katie -Veteran

“Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of this outreach program and to learn about horses. It was a great way to build confidence and learn new things, being on horses. The staff and other vets were great to interact with. Need more time with Billy and his hilarious stories. Very thankful and grateful for this. Thank you!”
