Therapeutic Horsemanship

Hooves for Heroes participants join with fellow Veterans and military spouses to learn riding skills and basic horsemanship while building meaningful relationships with a horse. Riding sessions are taught by a PATH International certified therapeutic riding instructor.

Therapeutic Horsemanship helps improve balance, motor skills, muscle tone, core strength, and endurance.

All Therapeutic Horsemanship classes also offer a group social time, which generally includes a complimentary meal and time to meet and bond with fellow service members. Most volunteers assisting with the Hooves for Heroes program are also Veterans or Armed Forces family members.
