Patriots Program

The Stars and Strides Patriots Program meets weekly and is open to any veteran who is living with PTSD or has sustained other injuries in connection with military service, regardless of the conflict or circumstance. The Patriots Program includes groundwork and riding. No previous horse experience is necessary and there is no required commitment for attendance.

A variety of interventions are utilized in order to realize the most benefits from an equine program. Veterans have seen improvements in a number of areas include physical strength, movement and balance, communication skills, emotional regulation, focus and concentration, comfort in new situations, trust in others, social interaction, coordination and cooperation, patience and relaxation, motivation and self-esteem, and compassion and empathy.

Veteran volunteers are recruited to support their fellow veterans and a key ingredient in the healing of injured individuals. Having veterans provide moral and physical support to their wounded comrades honors the military philosophy of no one left behind.

This service is completely free to veterans is funded by donations from local and national organizations, foundations, and individuals. If you would like to support our veterans, please click on the Donate button above.
