Horses for Healing Heroes
The purpose of Horses for Healing Heroes is to provide a place for Recovery and Recuperation and Renewal. People who suffer trauma, injury, and emotional or psychological affliction often respond to working with horses far more effectively than other kinds of therapy. Horses have been used for this purpose for over 3,000 years. What many call “amazing,” and “miraculous” results frequently occur when working closely with horses.
Patriotic Hearts has been assisting US Veterans and their families for decades. Now, with many American heroes risking their lives daily to provide our medical and physical needs, Patriotic Hearts expanding our mission to assist all First Responders: Fire, EMTs, Paramedics, Doctors and Nurses, and Police. All of these great Americans stand between us and danger. They risk their lives while saving the lives of other Americans. We all have an obligation to honor their daily sacrifices, and the anxiety and stress of their loved ones.
There are a variety of horse therapy programs, from the highly trained and certified professionals to concerned and philanthropic horse ranches; and from the strictly regulated by professional standards to horse people with good hearts. Each has their legitimate place in helping people to recover from a variety of emotional, developmental, and physical challenges. Horses have proven over thousands of years to be especially adept at restoring people to better health and mindfulness, regardless of a person’s affliction or issue.
We work with Armed Services, YMCA’s, andHorse of the Sun Ranch. Miracles happen there! And lives are changed for the better. The staff are amazing! Like all great coaches and teachers, they seem to have been gifted at birth to work with horses and to heal people. It is a wondrous dynamic!
Our charity, Patriotic Hearts, is forming relationships with selected programs across America. The funds we raise are distributed to these horse ranches to help provide for the needs of America’s Heroes across the country.
