Horses and Heroes

Peer Support

Military camaraderie,  community and a new found sense of purpose are all strengths of our program.  Physical benefits of riding include increased balance, flexibility, better pain management and weight loss.  PTSD, depression, anxiety and secondary trauma symptoms often improve as participants learn new skills and connect with their horse in an indescribable way.

Veteran Volunteers

After leaving the military, many Veterans are looking for new ways to serve others.  At Cloud 9, we need volunteers to help with lessons, maintain facilities, and keep horses tuned-up.  Mentoring opportunities are also available through Vet-to-Vet Support Command. Helping others helps us heal.
