A for purpose organization created for veteran's by a veteran
Here at HOOVES, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in rescuing horses and enlisting them to help service men and women turn Post Traumatic STRESS into Post Traumatic GROWTH, so they can heal, regain control and return to the life they fought to protect.
Our decision making process is informed by comprehensive empirical studies and high quality data evaluation. We strive to build productive relationships and make a positive impact with all of our pursuits.
WHAT HOOVES IS
A RETREAT, SAFE HAVEN AND SANCTUARY FOR BOTH HORSES AND VETERANS
AN OPPORTUNITY FOR GROWTH, SELF-HEALING, AND PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT THROUGH CONNECTING WITH MISSION, VISION & PURPOSE
A PLATFORM THAT FOSTERS SOCIAL AND NETWORKING OPPORTUNITIES
A PROGRAM THAT IS BUILT ON THE FOUNDATION OF PHILOSOPHY AND NATURAL LAW
A HOLISTIC PIECE OF THE HEALING PUZZLE THAT WILL SUPPORT AND ENHANCE OTHER TREATMENT
WHAT HOOVES IS NOT
HOOVES IS NOT THERAPY! OUR FACILITATORS DO NOT PROVIDE MENTAL HEALTH SERVICES (ALTHOUGH MANY MENTAL HEALTH PROVIDERS LOVE TO REFER TO US)
AN EXPERIENCE THAT REQUIRES YOU TO TELL YOUR STORY - WE ACTUALLY ENCOURAGE YOU NOT TO
A HORSEBACK RIDING PROGRAM - HORSES ARE POSITIONED AS A CONDUIT & MIRROR OF UNCONSCIOUS LIMITATIONS
AN EXPERIENCE THAT TAKES A LONG TIME TO SEE RESULTS - FEEDBACK IS INSTANT AND SHIFTS ARE IMMEDIATE
